Warm welcome for Cheshire Show

 

The Cheshire Show attracted more than 80,000 visitors this year, with temperatures averaging a comfortable 20C over the two-day show.

More than 600 trade stands filled the 200-acre site at Tabley, stretching across five kilometres of open countryside.

Cheshire East Council hosted a business stand, highlighting why Cheshire East is officially the ‘best place to live in the North West’.

Council Leader Councillor Michael Jones said: “The Cheshire Show is part of our heritage and it is a great showcase for our farming community and a brilliant day out for families.

“It has also been a great opportunity to promote Cheshire East as officially ‘the best place to live in the North West’, as well as shout about the regeneration happening in Crewe and Macclesfield, our vision for an HS2 hub at Crewe, our aspiration to tap into geothermal energy and so much more.

“Well done to all those who make this show a success year after year and to all the exhibitors who really make the event special to the Borough.”

The Cheshire Show was first held in 1838 and was historically an agricultural event. Today exhibitors range from TV stars to owners of vintage farming machinery.

Food and Farming Minister George Eustice MP also attended the event on Wednesday to discuss current issues with local farmers.

Nigel Evans, executive director of the Cheshire Show, said: “The Cheshire Show is a wonderful celebration of all things country…and was a perfect opportunity for thousands of visitors to enjoy a flavour of rural life. It was two brilliant days with something for everyone – thank you to all our volunteers, supporters and visitors.”
