SOCIETY ALREADY PLANNING FOR THE 2021 NANTWICH SHOW

NANTWICH Agricultural Society has announced plans to stage next year's popular Nantwich Show on Saturday, July 24 - rather than in the middle of the week as previously.

   It will be a one-day event as the International Cheese and Dairy Awards will no longer be hosted by The Nantwich Show but separately by IDCA Awards Ltd. A date for The Awards will be announced in due course.

   A statement from Nantwich Agricultural Society says: "This move to a weekend format is to encourage all sectors of the local community to attend and support this established event.

   "A Saturday show will be the first weekend show in 120 years and will facilitate a day out for all the family. It promises to deliver an action-packed line up of attractions and fun for everyone."

   The Chairman of Nantwich Agricultural Show, Michael-John Parkin, said: "The aim is to offer our local communities a welcome focus during a time of recovery for us all. Our residents and businesses have always supported us well and we urge them to continue to do so and aid the sustainability of The Nantwich Show and local economy.’’

   The show has not been held for two years due to adverse weather conditions in 2019 and Covid-19 in 2020.

   The show will still be staged on the show ground at Dorfold Hall and will be bigger and better than ever; crammed with local trade stands, livestock, country pursuits displays, a cookery theatre, a creative craft pavilion, the hugely popular food hall and much more!

   Mr Parkin said: "The decision for the two shows to part ways after an association of 120 years has been a difficult one but will provide new opportunities for growth, diversification, and sustainability for both events.

   “We would like to thank the Awards and the committee for their support over the years. Moving forward we will be retaining our historical links with them by planning attractions at each event.

   "The Chairman of the Nantwich Agricultural Society will still be involved with the Awards as an Agricultural Ambassador. We wish the International Cheese and Dairy Awards every success for the future.”

NANTWICH FOOD FESTIVAL IS TAKING PLACE -  ON LINE

NANTWICH Food Festival is taking place - but on line. Fans of the festival can visit their favourite stalls, learn what the stallholders have been doing, and place orders with them.

   More information on this can be found on www.nantwichfoodfestival.co.uk.

   See the festival set up before visiting the exhibitors. You can even select the part of the festival that you wish to visit and visit the stallholders by product type such as cheeses, sauces, oils, sweet treats, or pet food, etc.

   This festival will be running until Christmas - or perhaps longer.

   Next year's festival is being planned for September 3rd, 4th and 5th, "better than ever".

    This information was published in the Autumn 2020 edition of Nantwich Town Council's "Talk of the Town".

 

BLOOMS NOT JUDGED THIS YEAR BUT THE WORK WENT ON

JUDGING of the blooms in Nantwich did not take place in 2020 but Nantwich in Bloom Committee carried on with what they do best - keeping the town centre looking blooming good.

   With lockdown eased in May the Committee carried out NHS Rainbow-themed planting as tributes to medical and public servicer workers.

   There were fewer hanging baskets because of a watering issue.

   The Mayor of Nantwich, Cllr Pam Kirkham and her Deputy, her daughter Caroline, helped to judge the floral displays in town, with certificates awarded to the best..

   The Committee's new allotment was used for growing vegetables but in future will be used for propagating plants for town displays.

   The Committee has done more than the tasks listed here - at the Community Orchard, Nantwich railway station, the Coed Wen community woodland and in the Riverside.

 

Beam Heath Trust caNcels dividend distribution because of

COVID-19 PANDEMIC

A STATEMENT from the Chairman of the Beam Heath Trust Chairman, Kevin Hammersley, earlier this year said:

    Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Trustees of The Beam Heath reluctantly decided that it had become impossible to carry out safely the Distribution payment for 2020.

    Various ways in which the distribution could have been implemented were investigated, but all proposals were not without the possibility of some exposure to the virus.

    Discussions will take place to decide on the best way to proceed in 2021.
