LEEK & DISTRICT SHOW 2016
Last year, thousands of people turned out for the Annual Show, which was mainly hot and sunny. There was plenty to see and do – including all the farming animal displays and competitions and the many trade stands and marquees hosted by community groups and organisations. Leek United Building Society is once again proud to be main sponsor of the Leek & District Show.
2016 will be the third year of sponsorship for the Society, The good news is that the Society will continue as the main sponsor until 2022 – both strengthening Leek United’s links with what is rightly regarded as the area’s premier agricultural event and guaranteeing the Show’s future into the next decade.
President and Show Director 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.”
Each year, Leek & District Show attracts thousands of visitors young and old to its Showground venue on the Birchall Playing Fields, on the outskirts of Leek town centre.
This year’s event will take place on Saturday, 30th July, and there is a fun-packed programme of entertainment planned in addition to the traditional agricultural and horticultural competitions.
Leek United Chief Executive Kevin Wilson said: “The local community is at the very heart of everything we do at Leek United, and nothing typifies that more than the Leek Show.
“We look forward to continuing working with Derek and his Committee over the next five years, bringing families and businesses together in our heartland.”
The Society’s Chief Executive, Kevin Wilson, said: “Everything we do at Leek United has the best interests of the local community at heart, and Leek Show has that same community spirit and ethos of bringing together families and businesses.
“We are delighted to continue our partnership with Derek and his committee, and very much look forward to a great show day.”
