Thanks for making Holm Show a success


I would like to thank everyone, my committee members of the Holm Show, especially Jenny Nixon and Gilly Fraser, the secretaries, for their hard work during the year.

To Philip and Jim who keep things ticking over nicely, the rest of the conveners, various kindhearted people who are not on the committee but came along before the show to set things up and clear away once the show was over.

I am totally indebted to each and every one for making my job a lot easier on the day.

We had a fantastic lead-up to the show day, with the Scocha concert, a few hitches but all went well.

The show itself, as always, was busy and it was nice to see so many people turn out and support us.

The weather wasn’t clever but at least we kept the show going. Sadly, other shows in and around the area have been called off.

A big thank you to everybody for coming along and supporting the Holm Show.

Lastly, I must thank the youngsters who, on the Saturday night, came and helped load all the show jumping equipment onto the trailer, a job done in half the time and if any of those youngsters wish to come along next year to help, please do so.

A credit to everyone, especially Jessica, Callum and Rory, the future of the Holm Show.

Many thanks to everyone. Hopefully, we will have a ‘Summer 2018’.
