It is with deep regret that the Hawkshead Agricultural Society has made the difficult decision not to hold a show in 2022.
This decision has not been taken lightly, many avenues have been looked at and explored but unfortunately due to the costs incurred by cancelling several of the previous shows at the last minute and the Covid restrictions halting any fundraising events, the society cannot afford to put on a show this year. Added to which, the field used for the show is not available this year. The Society would like to thank Shaun Wood and his family for their co-operation in the use off the field over the last few years.
As the society is a registered charity, it relies heavily on the generous donations from sponsors to help with covering the prize monies for example. In this current financial climate, it was felt that to request monetary donations from businesses would be imposing on their generosity.
We hope to hold a few fund-raising events to try and bolster our funds so we can try and secure the future of the Society. Any events we hold we hope you can support them in the best way you can if you would like to join our Society, please contact any show member.
The society will review the situation for 2023.
