It is indeed an honour and pleasure to be President of Penrith Show.
I farm at Fog Close, near Kirkoswald with my family and have been a member of Penrith Show since I was in my early twenties. Time rolls on and it is also several years since I had the honour of being Chairman.
Penrith Show has grown from small beginnings to a large stock show, being one of the largest in the North of England. This is certainly due to the hard work of the Secretary, Chairman and Committee who work all year round preparing for the event.
A good atmosphere is created by the trade stands, produced by local businesses who offer the public hospitality and somewhere to rest.
This day gives the public a small insight into farming and helps to promote Cumbria agriculture.
I would like to welcome everyone to the 2017 Show and thank you for supporting us.
Mr Robin Raine
