A show for the en­tire com­mu­nity


IF THERE’S one thing a lo­cal show does, it’s bring­ing a com­mu­nity to­gether to cel­e­brate it­self.

That’s the goal at this year’s Wan­doan Show, with younger and older gen­er­a­tions working to­gether to present a fan­tas­tic event for the town.

Chief ring ste­ward Nancy Davies high­lighted this sen­ti­ment while dis­cussing the show com­mit­tee it­self.

"We’ve just got such a pas­sion­ate com­mit­tee and ev­ery­one’s so sup­port­ive, we’re re­ally for­tu­nate that we’ve got that, ev­ery­one’s happy for ev­ery­one to have an idea and have a go,” Mrs Davies said.

“That’s why our show in the past cou­ple of years is prob­a­bly re­ally gath­er­ing mo­men­tum be­cause we’re got such great sup­port and a lot of young com­mu­nity mem­bers are com­ing on board and they’re just do­ing a great job, so all in all ev­ery­one’s help­ing ev­ery­one out, it’s great.”

And the strong spon­sor­ship of the show demon­strates the com­mu­nity’s sup­port.

“Some peo­ple have been sup­port­ing for a lot of years and we re­ally, re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate them, but we’ve also got some new spon­sor­ship too so that’s re­ally ex­cit­ing,” she said.
