The return of the farm show is on time

The host of the Henley Farm and Country Show said it was important to return this year to ensure the future.

After being canceled last year due to the cholera epidemic, the event will be held at the Henley Show on Marlow Street (Saturday).

Joe Taylor, secretary and manager of the Henley and Woreda Agricultural Association and the show’s manager, said he feared the future of the show could be in doubt.

She said: “It is important that this year not only for the farming community but also for the people. Our farm is to educate the people on all aspects of agriculture.

“I felt that if we did not continue this year, we could lose our pace and go the same way as other shows.

It has been very unpleasant for the last 18 months, so it is very important that people get a lot of fresh air.

Attractions include animal displays such as cattle, sheep and pigs, more than 150 cars and tractors, slides, traditional landscaping trips and associated dog shows.

When Richard Savori and the Sheep Show and the giant tortoises from the Seychelles return, there will be gun dogs, hawks, and heavy horses.

The poultry tent will have many different chickens and ducks and the garden tent will have experts answering garden questions.

There will also be a craft and a market and a food and wine market.

Some changes have been made to the platform to make people feel comfortable following the outbreak, Ms. Taylor said.

There will be handwashing stations on site and visitors will be asked to wear masks in closed areas.

“We didn’t get the produce, but we are still waiting for some big vegetables,” said Taylor. They appear on the outside.

Our food and wine area, like the food and wine market, has more than 30 warehouses with their own gazebos and the dog show is running as usual with the acceptance of the day.

We have some good entries in the cattle and sheep section and there are some new breeds of cattle that we have not seen in the show for many years. For the first time, we found pigs.

“We all missed it – there is nothing better for me than seeing people leave the tent and have a good time on the show and I look forward to that. I only pray for good weather. ”

The doors open at 8:30 and the show ends at 5 p.m. There will be free parking near the display and free buses will run in and out of Bell Street, Henley from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Even well-meaning dogs are welcome.

Admission is ለአ 15 for adults (discounts £ 10), free for children under the age of majority. Cash and card payments are accepted at the door.
