ROYAL CHESHIRE SHOW
I am writing this letter the day following two most enjoyable and memorable days at the Royal Cheshire Show.
The marquee looked so lovely, the exhibits were of such a high standard, it never ceases to amaze me the ideas members have interpreting the theme of the Show. We have such talented members.
The demonstrators attracted considerable interest as did the Archive sub-committee with their stand and the various sub-committees, including Denman College. The Suffragettes on the Public Affairs stand were kept busy talking about various resolutions over 100 years as were the WI Advisers on the promotions stand and the publications stand who were constantly busy as people purchased many items.
The refreshments area and fast food areas were constantly busy with their excellent fresh food and drinks.
None of this would be possible without the large group of volunteers who keep everything running smoothly, working tirelessly through the days we are at the Show.
I have to apologise to everyone who worked so hard as I was not able to get around to everyone to offer my sincere thanks to you all in the marquee on the various shifts through the day. I was extremely busy, as was everyone, and did not manage my aim of thanking you all in person. This does not mean I did not appreciate the hard work of you all, just the opposite I appreciate the work everyone does for the Show and the Federation.
Again, a huge thank you to you all. I look forward to seeing you in 2019.
Jean Harding Federation Chairman
