Re­gions are heart of show

North West Telegraph - - News - Mitchell Wood­cock

Re­gional com­mu­ni­ties are at the heart of what the Perth Royal Show is about, ac­cord­ing to Royal Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety of West­ern Aus­tralia pres­i­dent Paul Carter.

All the fun of the an­nual event be­gins on Septem­ber 22 and runs un­til Septem­ber 29, with events, show­bags, rides, and of course the best pro­duce in WA, set to lure tens of thou­sands of West Aus­tralians to the Clare­mont Show­grounds.

Each year hun­dreds of peo­ple from re­gional WA bring their finest an­i­mals, pro­duce and skills to be judged by the RASWA.

Mr Carter said his as­so­ci­a­tion’s aim was to in­flu­ence agri­cul­ture in WA by “bring­ing the in­dus­try to­gether to en­gage, cre­ate and cel­e­brate”.

“To cel­e­brate the best in West­ern Aus­tralia and how this ex­tends to the en­deav­ours and out­put of our ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties is at the heart of what we do,” he said.
