Royal Cheshire Show – June 2019


The Royal Cheshire County Show 2019 is being held on the 18th & 19th June.

The Royal Cheshire Show is organised by the charity, Cheshire Agricultural Society CIO. The land-owning gentry of the county founded the Cheshire Agricultural Society in 1838, when the Royal Cheshire Show was first held. The Show has expanded over the years to include many new attractions and now attracts up to 80,000 visitors each year.

 

 

Each year Our Region organises a Soroptimist stand and members from around the Region help to run the event. 

This year our theme is ‘Period Poverty’ and we shall be running a petition to abolish VAT on sanitary products.

After 7 years of raising awareness about Soroptimist International, this will be our last presence at the Royal Cheshire Show.

Over the years we have raised awareness about Breast Cancer, Toilet Twinning, Mary’s Meals, Domestic Violence and the  Purple Tear Drop Campaign.

Thank you to the Committee and all the members who have supported over the years.
