On behalf of the Northampton District Agricultural Society and all its members I’d like to welcome you all to our 101st Annual Northampton Show.
We have made it to the Century and now we continue to roll on, with new fresh ideas for all to enjoy this year.
Our 100th show was a massive success and all reports were that everyone had a fantastic day out with family and friends. I’d like to thank the Committee and all our helpers, as without you, last years and our 101st show would be very difficult to run.
For our 101st show we have once again organised some fantastic entertainment, with the return of Painter Extraordinaire Phil Doncon, with his Paint Storm, Greenough Wildlife Park, Old Macdonalds Farm, pony rides, Regional Men’s Health, Scitech and new attraction Theaker, an amazing aerial trapeze artist.
There will also be a huge array of side shows and stalls to enjoy. Local Geraldton musician Julian Webb will entertain us into the evening followed by our spectacular reworks display.
Once again, all adults a ending the show will be eligible to win a $50 fuel voucher and there is also a $50 fuel voucher for a member to win.
From all accounts our very first show day was a huge success and it was carried on for many more years to come, only breaking in times of war.
It is with this success and the success of many of the farmers and exhibitors year in year out that we are able to run one of the state’s best small town rural shows.
In the good times and the bad, I believe events like our show are very important as they bring us all together and help us grow as a rural community. We can all learn from each other’s successes and failures, in the hope that this may assist us in passing all this on to future genera ons.
I would also like to thank all our very generous sponsors for today’s event, as without your support the show would not be the great success that it is. These include Lotterywest, Healthway ‘Make Smoking History’, Purcher International, Leon Baker Jewellers, Chilimony Farms, CBH Group, Landmark and many many more.
I look forward to seeing you all at the Showgrounds and hope that we can make this, our 101st show, a show for all to remember.
