Showing off in Kirwee

by Kent Caddick

The 142nd Courtenay A&P Show was held in near perfect conditions on Saturday.

Held at the Kirwee Showgrounds the show once again highlighted the best of the rural community to locals and visitors alike.

Show President Ashley Seaton said he was delighted with the way the day went.

“It went well and I enjoyed it immensely especially after I had got my speech out of the way,” Mr Seaton said. “While it is hard to tell I reckon the numbers were similar to last year.” Mr Seaton said the number of entries in the sheep section were up on previous years. 

“It was the first time in many years that we have had the sheep pens full up.”

He said he enjoyed the show as president but couldn’t have done it without the support of a hard working committee.
