CHAIRMAN’S INTRODUCTION Bob Sheldon

I

t has been a challenging, but stimulating year and with a strong team we have made progress on many fronts against a stiff headwind. We are very appreciative of the efforts made by outgoing President Tony Strawson to help us strengthen and broaden our membership by bringing prominent members of the rural community back into our network through a series of successful show lunches and a special membership offer. It is also encouraging that we significantly increased our membership and had a healthy demand for advance tickets to the County Show, a wonderful effort all round. Tony was also instrumental in helping us increase the machinery element of the County Show; he physically placed many signs out and then ran a tremendous post-show evening, which raised a magnificent £7,400 for the RABI. We now welcome our new president Mich Stevenson, OBE DL, who took the reins from Tony at the County Show. We look forward to working with Mich. In a special moment at the County Show, Service to Agriculture Medals and Long Service (Single Farm) Awards were presented by the President in the Main Ring. Twenty-four recipients represented a massive 967 years of loyal work to the industry and included eight of Tony’s own staff. A new medal was introduced for those who have served over 55 years, often progressing through various trades to their current role – or providing valuable services to many clients as individual self-employed contractors – often as unsung heroes. We salute them all. Educational Grants totalling £5,500 were

awarded to eight agricultural students – two of whom, brothers John and Craig Voce, were stewarding at the Show for the first time. It is especially rewarding to be able to recognize long service and to encourage young talent simultaneously. My sincere thanks go to our sponsors, supporters, staff and fellow members of Council, for all that they have done for the Society this year. Finally, we are delighted that our former president, Sir John Peace DL, is this year’s High Sheriff of Nottinghamshire, and we pass on our warmest congratulations on his knighthood.

FROM THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE Adrian Johnston

W

elcome to the 2011 report. Trading remains fragile but our performance has substantially improved on 2010 and we have made positive advances in returning to profit. This is no reflection of the amount of work expended at the showground. We are confident in our continued progress, which is so fundamental to our future. After a difficult winter, we have had an extremely dry summer. This reduced grass cutting but increased irrigation, in addition to the repair of many potholes which have appeared as a result of the heavy use of our venue. We must work our assets hard but retain customer focus at all times. Considerable time has been invested in developing Vision 2030, an exciting, 20-year plan for the Society, but implementation has inevitably been delayed. Presentations to local groups have commenced for feedback and to build support. Key elements for the first phase include the development of a new entrance on the A46 side; Blue gate parking; the renovation of the Crocker Halls and Lady Eastwood Pavilion. The Cedric Ford Pavilion will be redecorated and eventually incorporate a conference centre. The new main entrance will eventually lead to a new 5,000m exhibition hall connected to the Lady Eastwood Pavilion possibly with covered walkways. This will enhance existing events such as the County Show, Tractor Show and LAMMA but also raise our facilities to exhibition hall standard, helping us attract new customers. In a separate initiative, our work with consultants Shining Earth will result in targeted investment to help us achieve cost reductions.

4

Our site has huge potential for the introduction of green technologies, but we will only implement economically sound measures. We continue to promote agriculture and were delighted to win the coveted Business Commitment to the Community Award for 2010. The County Show has, once again, grown in stature. Despite the demise of 10 major agricultural shows in recent years, the Newark & Notts remains as the first annual show in England. Our Vintage Tractor and Heritage Show also continues to consolidate its pre-eminence. In closing, may I specifically thank our last President Tony Strawson, and everyone else who has helped to make both events so successful. We are most grateful. With best wishes,

Adrian Johnston Chief Executive Officer

BUSINESS REVIEW

Tough trading, but a busy year

O

ur financial result reflects tough trading conditions for our customers, yet the Showground hosted 550 events last year. The team at International Antiques and Collectors Fairs (IACF) is re-invigorating ‘Europe’s largest antiques event’ and a video showcases the Newark Antiques Fair on its website (www.iacf.co.uk/newark). Foreign buyers are

returning which is so important for many parts of our local economy. Regular events provide a strong base. Penny Farthing Fairs staged 10 Autojumble shows. The Kit Car Festival celebrated its 29th year in 2011, enjoying its highest number of exhibits and manufacturers for many years. Aztec Events has diversified its portfolio, adding the popular Robin Hood Game and Country Show and Festive Gift and Food Show to its established Spring Garden Show. Americana International is still attracting over 50,000 visitors, three decades on. LAMMA’s 2011 show was another huge success, attracting 60,000 visitors and 700 exhibitors, from 11 countries. Multi-agency discussions take place throughout the year to minimize traffic congestion, particularly during LAMMA’s 2011 Show, and we continue to work on this. The Cedric Ford Pavilion hosted a range of events, while Tastes’ outside catering team

fulfilled wedding and party bookings, catered at Belton and the Osberton Horse Trials and was President’s caterer at the Collingham Show. Tastes Bistro in the George Stephenson Hall is also making a welcome contribution. Planned upgrades included extending branded signage around the site. The Stuart Goodwin Pavilion and Council Chamber were redecorated, and a hearing induction loop and overhead projector were installed. The office block has been re-clad in naturallyweathering Cedar from a sustainable source, windows double-glazed and 4” Celotex insulation installed throughout to reduce heating and maintenance bills. Looking ahead, the team is pleased that despite worrying macro-economic conditions Newark Showground continues to be a favorite for so many people. We aim to ensure that this continues to be the case.

COUNTY SHOW 2011

County Show buoyant again

B

etter weather and a family-focused show helped attendance levels this year; indeed, demand for advance tickets was up significantly. The result was a brilliant atmosphere at this traditional agricultural show. Over 1,200 animals were entered in livestock classes – another year on year increase – providing plenty to see among the cattle, dairy, sheep and nearly 150 pig exhibits. Chief Pig Steward Des Allen was impressed by the exceptional standard and variety, with thirteen different breeds represented. Local pig producer Richard Blant agreed: “I haven’t seen such an excellent display since the heyday of the Royal.” The show delivered something for everyone from the Youth Zone and Children’s Fun Fair to the Main Arena displays and show jumping. Horses of all sizes, including a first class heavy horse entry, graced the horse rings, many vying for championship qualification.

6

There were thrilling motorcycle exhibitions from the Xtreme Trials Display Team, while speed and daring of a different kind were to the fore with the return of the Mounted Games Association. The inaugural Farriers’ Competition was a tremendous hit as visitors flocked to watch skilled craftsmen at work, judged by twice world champion farrier Steven Beane. Food lovers enjoyed the ‘Love Food – Hate Waste’ demonstrations by celebrity TV chef, Richard Fox. Julia Blant, of Ladies in Pigs – and a Long Service medal recipient at the 2010 show – joined the Retail Meat Traders to share her pork-based recipes. Children were ‘hands-on’ at the Cookery School while Paul Jones, an organic baker from Melton Mowbray, enthusiastically promoted Real Bread. Away from the Food Hall’s mouth-watering morsels, artefacts of yesteryear could be found

OBITUARIES “Proud to be promoting British Food & Farming”

in the Farming Heritage Area and the Antiques Village. In the Countryside Area visitors enjoyed watching falcons, sheep shearing, working ferrets, gundogs, poultry, wildfowl and a fishing demonstration. Dogs had a field day too with ‘Have-A-Go’ dog agility, an RSPCA Dog Show, Cyril the Squirrel Terrier Racing and the K9 Freestyle Dancing Dogs display. First-time business exhibitors Porsche were delighted, confirming their return in 2012, and interest in Isuzu’s commercial vehicles was strong: “This was our first time at the Newark & Nottinghamshire County Show and we are very, very, pleased with the result,” they said. Thanks must go to our 48 sponsors and many fantastic volunteers. Without them the show could not happen.

David Hall David Hall, of Hill Farm, Norwell, sadly died on August 27. Head Steward Internal Transport at the Newark and Nottinghamshire County Show, David had attended for over 50 years, receiving a long-service medal. Many will recall his bravery in calming the heavy horses during an incident several years ago, risking his own safety. Born in 1932, David attended Southwell Minster Grammar School, later becoming a school governor. A member of Caunton Young Farmers’ Club, he studied at Brackenhurst Agricultural College before moving to farm in Norwell in the 1950s with his late wife Beryl. They had two children, Simon and Charlotte. David’s brother Robin is a member of the Society’s Council. He was chairman of the Silver Horseshoe Riding Club, a keen volunteer with British Eventing, travelled widely fence judging and was a committee member for Flintham and Southwell ploughing matches. David ran Little Carlton United football team in the 1960s and was a former president of Norwell Cricket Club and Newark Rotary. Our thoughts are with his family. He will be sadly missed by all staff and Council members of the Society. Tony Lighton We were saddened by the sudden and untimely death in May of the LAMMA Show Chairman and good friend to the society, Tony Lighton. He will be greatly missed.

VINTAGE TRACTOR AND HERITAGE SHOW 2010

Several records broken

T

he eighth Newark Vintage Tractor and Heritage Show exceeded all expectations, with our generous sponsors, volunteer stewards, show management team, staff, exhibitors and visitors all contributing to its success and the enjoyment of a perfect, sunny autumn weekend. Attracting a record-breaking 927 exhibits, 18,000 visitors – 25% up on 2009 – including many families, and with a huge increase in trophies, the Newark Vintage Tractor & Heritage Show confirmed its position as the country’s premier vintage tractor show. With the 2010 feature tractors, David Brown and Case, outnumbering the previous year’s record entry of Internationals, the enormous Features Marquee was expanded to accommodate an amazing display. The show took in the vast range of vehicles that form such a vital part of agricultural history – from the local bus to trucks and the everpopular Land Rovers.

The Native and Rare Breeds Exhibition drew 140 varieties to the Sir John Eastwood Halls, showcasing Britain’s native breeds of horses, ponies, cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, rabbits, poultry alongside practical demonstrations including working ferrets and dog hair-spinning. A popular attraction was the National Brewery Centre beer

dray, drawn by Shire horses. Tractor and old vehicle enthusiasts were in their element at Saturday’s Vintage Auction, run by Brown & Co, and Sunday’s Old Sodbury’s Sort-Out. Four hundred people attended a moving Remembrance Day Service run by Canon Ed Pruen of Southwell Minster, in the George Stephenson Hall, featuring projected images and many personal objects of remembrance. The volume of entries and a proliferation of categories and awards necessitated a change to the presentation. Winners were published on Saturday evening with the extensive range of trophies awarded on Sunday. The younger generation, father and son and husband and wife teams were well represented among winners, indicating that the vintage tractor movement remains popular and providing further evidence of the event’s family appeal.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Award-winning commitment

T

he Society was proud to receive the 2010 Business Commitment to the Community Award at last November’s prestigious Newark Business Awards. We also remain committed to our charitable purpose to promote agriculture. Notts YFC is based at the Showground and its members provide welcome County Show support. Eight NNAS education grants and four prizes for Higher and Further education students were awarded to students at Brackenhurst College this year. Sponsorship of the Collingham, Flintham and Southwell shows, the British Blue Show and the Belvoir Hunt’s hedge-laying competition helps to fulfill our remit to promote agriculture locally. We continue to host our Local Shows conference to share best practice. Newark Business Club hosts over 100 local business people at its monthly breakfast meetings. Providing the Cedric Ford Pavilion for this keeps us at the heart of the business community. Use of the Showground enabled charity events such as Beaumond House’s Sleepwalk

and Sunflower Fun-Run to take place. We also support Newark Half-Marathon and loan equipment to Newark Town Council. Over £500 was raised for the British Legion’s poppy campaign at the Vintage Tractor Show and £2,500 was raised at the National Beef Association’s 2011 Expo dinner, from the raffle and auction run by NNAS. It was divided between The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution and the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance. RABI also benefitted from the magnificent £7,400 raised at a summer reception kindly hosted by immediate-past President, Tony Strawson. A useful meeting with the Society’s tenants explored mutual concerns such as access during events, security, itinerants, rubbish disposal and parking.
