2019 President

Apr 12, 2019 | Membership News, News, Show News

We are delighted to welcome Mr John Seymour as President for 2019. This year is very auspicious as it will be the 160th Anniversary of Stokesley Agricultural Society.

Our President has been involved with Stokesley Show for over 40 years particularly concentrating on being a Cattle Steward and Commentator. As well as Show day Mr Seymour has been a Member of The Stokesley Agricultural Council, together with the Vice Presidents who oversee and implement the many changes over the years.

We are very fortunate that John Seymour is our President and he has kindly written some words of encouragement for the coming year: –

“Over the years the Show has changed and developed in many ways, but has always maintained it’s very broad appeal to a wide audience. The Show has tried to demonstrate the links between Farming and the Food Industry and the Consumer. In this internet age and with all the Supermarkets it is important to remind people where their food comes from and the efforts made to get it to their plate.

This years’ show aims to be the best ever with lots of attractions for young and old. I look forward to welcoming you all on Show day”
