Com­mit­tee gets A&P Show go­ing for CHB re­gion

CHB Mail - - Focus - BY DAVID POUL­TON pres­i­dent, CHB A&P Show.

The CHB A&P As­so­ci­a­tion Show is nearly upon us and it is my priv­i­lege to wel­come you to the 2018 event.

It is a time when town and coun­try com­bine and is recog­ni­tion of the in­ter­de­pen­dence of the two sec­tors.

The show runs from Novem­ber 8-10.

Thurs­day Novem­ber 8 kicks off with dog tri­als and dres­sage com­pe­ti­tion.

Fri­day Novem­ber 9 dog tri­als con­tinue and eques­trian events be­gin.

Satur­day Novem­ber 10 is the pub­lic’s day and there are plenty of events hap­pen­ing through­out the day.

Along with the sheep com­pe­ti­tion, shear­ing and wool­han­dling are start­ing at 8am, and the dog trial run offs and the eques­trian events con­tinue through­out the day.

There are also many trade and ex­hibitor sites for var­ied in­ter­ests. Ma­hon’s Amuse­ments will be on­site for side show.

Craig Smith, au­thor of the well known chil­dren’s book The Won­key Don­key will be sure to en­ter­tain all ages, at two shows at 11am and 2pm.

The show day fin­ishes with the very pop­u­lar bull rid­ing event which draws a large crowd and a guar­an­tee of thrills and spills.

Be­hind the scenes there is a hard­work­ing com­mit­tee whose com­bined ef­forts make it all pos­si­ble.

We look for­ward to see­ing you at this year’s CHB A&P Show.
