Belford Show

The ever popular Duck Race was won by Pat Brown, or at least her duck won. Not Pat herself.

We had over 700 exhibits entered into this year’s show. This first to be held back in a marquee for well over 20 years I believe.

As you know, after the Middle School closed, we desperately needed a new venue. It was felt that the only viable alternative was a marquee, but with no location and no funds for a marquee things looked bleak. But this is Belford. In no time at all, Belford Golf Club gave permission to site our marquee and local businesses and many individual sponsors leant their support and the idea became reality.

The Show Committee thanks each and every person who helped make the 101st Belford Show happen.

The Show was very well supported and we received many positive comments from people attending. More than 350 people visited the marquee.

It was touch and go on the days leading up to Show day. It was too windy on Wednesday to have the marquee erected. That being the day Olympus Marquees had a slot free to do the job. The irony being that once up, the tent is good for up to 90mph wind speed.

The tent went up late on Thursday, allowing our hardy team of volunteers to set up for the show on Friday.

Plans are already being made for the 102nd Show next year.
