Thank You 2022
All I can say is WOW! What a show we had this year. We can’t thank you enough for helping us pull off the biggest and best ever Northampton Show! To the entire of the Northampton Shire community, our supporters, volunteers, judges, stewards, exhibitors, local council, suppliers, vendors, members and of course all the show-goers who came on the day… thank you thank you thank you!
My personal highlights from the day include the opening of our brand new Ram Shed, the traditional Exhibition Hall display coming together once again, showing jumping, moto-X, the retro Wedding Dress parade, the massive Main Stage and top quality entertainment, outdoor cocktail bar and the range of free stuff for kids including entry, rides and games. Oh, and the chooks.. err, I mean fireworks, everyone loves those (except my dog Chester).
We already have had a lot of constructive feedback about the day from the community, if you have anything to add, please contact us. We understand that due to the record attendance numbers we had big queues for entry and food on the day… these are just some of our top priorities to improve for next year as we work on an even bigger show for all to enjoy.
Putting on a major event like this takes a lot of support, not only from generous members and volunteers… but also from our sponsors, including (to name just a few) LotteryWest, Road Safety Commission, Purcher International, Nutrien Ag Solutions, Qoin, Leon Baker, Northampton Lions Club, Western Power, St Johns and Murchison Hydrogen Renewable. Also the gang from Vero Insurance, we really couldn’t do it without you all, and for that we are truly grateful.
Better get practising the Cha Cha Slide for next years 105th Annual Northampton Show… 2023 date to be announced next month. Right now we need a moment to hang up our dancing shoes.
