Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

Local property firm sponsors Leicestershire County Show

Local property professionals Andrew Granger & Co Ltd has sponsored the upcoming Leicestershire County Show for the fourth year in a row.

The two-day annual event which takes place on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 August this year is organised by the Leicestershire Agricultural Society and describes itself as celebrating rural life with livestock, equine classes and a wide range of family entertainment.

Andrew Granger & Co are supporting the event with sponsorship of £3,500 and a stand situated by the main event ring.

Rupert Harrison, Director and Head of Rural for Andrew Granger & Co Ltd, said:

“We are very happy to be supporting and present at this popular regional event again.

“Having been a business within the county for 30 years we feel it’s important to help community events and groups where we can.

“Agriculture is still a huge part of this special county and it’s lovely to use this opportunity to celebrate all that it offers.

“We do hope that visitors will come and find us, say hello, indulge in a cream tea on us and take part in our family competition where you have a chance to win a £100 Joules gift voucher.”

Originally formed by a group of Leicestershire farmers as long ago as 1833, the Leicestershire Agricultural Show was designed to promote improvements in agriculture, share new farming techniques and exhibit new equipment.

The same ideals still exist today, but with more competitions and attractions suitable for all the family - a real slice of country life where children and adults have a chance to get up close to farm animals.

This year the event’s attractions include:

  • Flyin’ Ryan Motorcycle Stunt Show – jaw-dropping tricks with a dash of comedy
  • Equine skills display
  • Sheep and cattle display including ‘The Sheep Show’
  • Dog demonstration to music by the Nuneaton Dog Club
  • Fun and obedience show day
  • Fun and pedigree show day
  • Vintage cars and tractors
  • Bouncy castle, donkey rides and hundreds of food and craft stalls

The event takes place at The Showground, Market Harborough, LE16 7QX on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 August. There is free parking and the event is free for those under the age of 14. Tickets can be purchased on the gate or in advance online at http://leicestershirecountyshow.co.uk/ which provides a 20% saving.
