POST SHOW REPORT FROM OUR PRESIDENT

Written by Webmaster.

Record crowds flocked to the 157th Egham Royal Show last weekend, when warm weather and live coverage from BBC Surrey helped to generate a great atmosphere on the Showground at Whitehall Lane in Egham.

The highlight of the first day was the re-appearance of the 8 Magna Carta Giants of Liberty, which had last been seen entertaining Her Majesty The Queen at Runnymede on 15 June, on the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta.

 

The Giants had been made by local schoolchildren, including pupils from Magna Carta School, in 2014, and they marched around the Main Arena operated by local children to a historical commentary prepared by Surrey County Council

The Show was opened on Saturday morning by the Mayor of Runnymede, Cllr Derek Cotty, and the Mayoress, Susan Jones, who went on to tour the Showground in a vintage Bentley, and then to meet and greet the stallholders, traders and sponsors of the Show.

The climax of Saturday was a Barn Dance run by Egham Residents Association, held in the Community Marquee and attended by 160 people.

The weather stayed dry on Sunday, when the crowd favourite was a stunning motor bike display put on by the Squibb Freestyle Stunt Team. The huge aerial jumps had the audience spellbound.

Other entertainments over the weekend included the very popular Bob Hogg's Sheepdog Display, the Golden Eagle Archers, the First Class Falconry Display and the ever popular vintage cars.

Show President Nick Wood-Dow said he was delighted with the results of the two day Show. He thanked all of the volunteers on the Show Committee for their dedication and hard work during the past year.

He thanked the main sponsors of the Show, including Crest Nicholson, HCL, Procter and Gamble, Menzies Accountants, Future Electronics, Gemini Cars, Royal Holloway University of London, Waitrose, SITA and Surrey County Councillor for Virginia Water Marisa Heath.

Planning for the 158th Show in August 2016 begins at the next Committee meeting in late September.
