Election of Officers 2013

Lurgan & District Horse & Cattle Show Society committee recently held a very successful family BBQ and social evening at Bleary Farmers Hall to round off a very successful show year.

The event was attended by a large gathering of Show Officials, office bearers, members and helpers along with family and friends.

It was a great opportunity to engage with each other and reflect upon the year past. This event also rounded off the 2013 show year and prior to the forthcoming AGM and commencement of another nine months of planning working towards the 2014 show.

The Committee are always keen to keep expanding the show and open for new ideas and suggestions.

However, to progress and develop the annual event, more volunteers are required. If you believe you can offer any help or assistance, no matter how small, it would be greatly appreciated.

Meetings are held monthly at Bleary Farmers Hall. For more details contact: Michele Doran- 07732172214 or lurganshow@hotmail.co.uk.
