Goosnargh & Longridge Virtual Agricultural Show 2020

Vikki Wood - 2020 Presidents Address

Hi all, Welcome to your virtual Goosnargh and Longridge Show 2020. Unfortunately, we can’t welcome you to the showground in person so we have taken the show online. I think we are all getting used to communicating online in these strange and uncertain times. I would like to thank the committee and volunteers for their dedication and hard work in bringing the show to you this and every year. Please join us on Saturday 11th July 2020 for what we hope will be an enjoyable experience for all. Before I sign off please make a note of next years show date 10th July 2021 when we really do hope to see you all in person. Looking forward to your support enjoy the show.

Best regards, Vikki Wood President.

A note from our Chair, Claire Eccles...

When it came apparent that this year’s show would have to be cancelled due to COVID-19 we all felt disappointed.  The planning for this year’s show began right after last year’s was over and the 2020 show was coming together nicely.  We have had to alter the format of shows before in the past due to foot and mouth and extreme wet weather, but we have always managed to stage a show of some kind.  So to do nothing felt wrong, the show had to go on! And go on it has, as we took the brave steps to go online.  I am incredibly fortunate that I have a supportive and talented committee, who when faced with, “Do you think we could have an online show?” enthusiastically stepped up to that challenge.  I am incredibly grateful to Leo and Pippa, who have put hours of work into making this happen and the results are amazing.  I am also very grateful to all those who have taken the time to enter, without you there would not be a show to view. 
The committee is already thinking about the 2021 show when we hope that we will be able to welcome you all back to the show field on Lower Lane in Longridge.  If you are inspired to enter yourself next year there will be many more sections and classes to choose from.   If you have never been to the Goosnargh and Longridge Show why not put Saturday 10th July in your diary now.  It is a great day out for all the family.
