Leek and District Show is a real crowd-puller

THE annual Leek and District Show never fails to draw the crowds and this year’s offering on Saturday promises to be no exception.

The dedicated organising committee have drawn up an extensive and varied programme of events to entertain visitors throughout the day on the vast expanse of Birchall playing fields.

It’s very much a family event, with plenty to see and do for people of all ages, from inside and outside the farming community.

There will be the usual vast array of livestock waiting to catch the eye of the judges and countless trade stands and marquees hosted by community groups and organisations from throughout the district.

Leek United Building Society is sponsoring the event for the fourth successive year and will continue to do so right up until 2022.

Show president Derek Torr said:” We have a terrific rapport with Leek United and are delighted that the Society is continuing its sponsorship.

To have the backing of the town’s principal building society means a lot and we have the certainty of knowing that the Show’s future is secure until at least 2022.”
