Kentish Express Ashford & District - - COUNTRYFILE -

COUNT­ESS Mount­bat­ten of Burma is to be pres­i­dent of the an­nual Ash­ford Cat­tle Show, which will cel­e­brate 150 years since its for­ma­tion with a spec­tac­u­lar two­day event in De­cem­ber. The hon­our of be­ing the fig­ure­head at the big­gest and best Christ­mas fat­stock show at­tract­ing the prime cat­tle, sheep, pigs and crops from across the south, fol­lows her late hus­band Lord Brabourne who was pres­i­dent of the cen­te­nary show when the Duke of Ed­in­burgh was his guest in Ash­ford. Wood­church farmer Tony Weller was elected the new chair­man with Michael Brom­ley from Char­ing as his deputy.
