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 organisationsLEEK 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, further strengthening its links with what is rightly regarded as the area’s premier agricultural event.
The Society has been a regular supporter of Leek Show – the biggest and best local highlight of the summer – over many years, and is now looking to build on the huge success of last year’s Show.
Derek Torr, President and Show Director, said: “We were delighted when Leek United became our main sponsor, and it is a relationship that has worked out extremely well for us all.
“Together, we want to ensure that the Show continues to grow and improve year on year. We have all the support we could ask for from the town’s principal building society, and all we need now is good weather on the day to bring the crowds out!”
Leek United’s hospitality marquee is always a popular destination for visitors in need of refreshment at the annual Show, hosted by staff from ‘the friendlier face of finance’.
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.”
