Eg­mont show only two weeks away

South Taranaki Star - - OUT & ABOUT - CE­LINE FILBEE

It’s just two short weeks un­til the Haw­era Auto Court Eg­mont show, its 134th edi­tion.

There is much ac­tiv­ity at the show­grounds. The 150 vol­un­teers who help to put the show to­gether are rip­ping into ac­tion and the show com­mit­tee has been plan­ning the show events all year.

It was with much sad­ness we re­cently saw the pass­ing of our hard­work­ing care­taker Bruce Cudby. He had a big send off at the Catholic Church and they took Bruce for one last drive through the show­grounds on the way to his ser­vice. Bruce was pas­sion­ate about the show­grounds and loved his job here. Not many days went by with­out him call­ing in to do a few jobs, see a user group or pop into the of­fice to empty the bins or wash the dishes. The grounds have looked fan­tas­tic un­der Bruce’s care, the grass was kept to within a 16th tol­er­ance and weeds dared not pop their heads above ground height.

We will miss Bruce and the com­mit­ment he gave to the as­so­ci­a­tion.

Mal­colm Hur­ley is act­ing care­taker un­til a re­place­ment can be found.

The month of Novem­ber is a bit qui­eter events wise as the dayto-day run­ning of the venue is dis­rupted by the show set up, but all the reg­u­lars will be here plus a cou­ple of eques­trian events.

The venue is look­ing mag­nif­i­cent and there are a few last­minute projects that will be com­pleted be­fore the show.
