Rain failed to dampen the spirits at the 50th celebratory StowAg Show. Over 700 visitors attended the show which was held at the StowAg headquarters in Longborough in the heart of the Cotswolds.
The full day show provided visitors with the opportunity to engage in demonstrations, gain product advice and make the most of exclusive offers whilst chatting to the StowAg team and a plethora of exhibitors.
To the delight of both the team at StowAg and many customers, the show was opened by valued StowAg employee Mike ‘Sticky’ Griffin who recently suffered a stroke. Sticky has received tremendous care at the Specialist Stroke Rehabilitation Inpatient Unit at the Vale Community Hospital and he continues to progress incredibly well. Money raised at the show has been divided between the rehabilitation unit and the Royal Agricultural Benevolent
Institution (RABI). Entertainment was provided by the talented Hogg Show who provided many fun and fascinating facts about pigs which was enjoyed by visitors of all ages. Food and drink was supplied by Donnington Brewery (who made StowAg’s own ale), Pearson’s Cider Co and Cotswold Salt Beef.
Ashley Nichols, General Manager, commented: “The show was an incredibly enjoyable day and we would like to thank so many for exhibiting and supporting us and coming to celebrate this milestone.”
Laura Ractliffe of RABI added: “Great events such as these provide such a good opportunity to raise the profile of the charity and we
are grateful to StowAg for their continued support.”
