Moreton-in-Marsh Show

Organising the day is a real team effort


Secretarys message
with the Kangaroo Kid, but I never thought I would find myself in the position of show secretary. I have really enjoyed working with the chairmen of each section, who have all put in a huge amount of time and effort to make sure that this years show is a huge success. Gill and Liz in the office, together with our regular volunteers, Pam, John, Mary, Doreen and Helen, have all shown outstanding dedication and we have been rewarded with a high volume of entries which have exceeded last years figures. I have also been lucky enough to have the support and encouragement from past secretary Tim Gardner whose knowledge is invaluable. I am hoping that I will get to venture out from the secretarys tent to see some of the amazing acts we have booked for this

Show secretary Clare Foster will be heading up the team organising the big day for the first time this year ...
year. I am particularly looking forward to seeing the Knights of Middle England perform in the grand arena. We have more trade stands this year, approaching 300 and I hope to get round to see as many as I can, The Moreton Show has a team of dedicated trustees and volunteers and I am very happy to be part of this amazing team and I know this years show will be bigger and better than ever.

AM very much looking forward to the show this year. In the past I have been involved with the show through my connections with past chairman Nickki Eden and through my work

My first show visit aged six


Y history with the Show started at the tender age of six months when my grandfather, head cowman for the famous Wappenbury herd for over 50 years, was showing Jersey cattle for the late Sir William Lyons. Over the years I became a member of Young Farmers and attended agricultural college, eventually becoming involved with the Moreton Show through the North Cotswold Round Table whose members at the time organised parking and gate receipts. I joined the showground committee and have now progressed to my present position of

87.7FM is There arent many can claim to have our radio started with the show as young as frequency Stuart Mace, this years chairman for event
ISTENERS to North Cotswold Community Radio will be treated to a live broadcast during the show this year. The station will be broadcasting live on 87.7FM until Saturday and listeners will be able to listen live between 8am and 10pm each day. The broadcasts will feature all the latest news about the people and businesses taking part in the show and on the day NCCR presenters will be speaking to show-goers and exhibitors. The latest traffic information will be available and show-goers can visit the presenters on their battle bus. Robb Eden, NCCR chairman, is looking forward to the broadcast after the success of the first live broadcast during the show last year. He said: Its always good to broadcast to a bigger audience, especially on FM. We have lots of listeners overseas including ex-pats. The Moreton Show is an important event. It gives us the opportunity to promote the Cotswolds and to become involved in this wonderful event.

Chairmans message
society chairman. I would like to thank all of you who are attending the show this year. Your enjoyment of the day makes all the time and effort that so many put into the event worthwhile. My thanks also extend

to all of my fellow committee members, volunteers, stewards and judges for all of the time and effort they also invest. It is hard to believe how few paid staff we have without our volunteers we could not exist. I look forward to seeing you at Moreton Show and I also look forward to the 2012 show which will be our 60th. During the present economic climate we all have to spend our money wisely. This is a wise investment, it is incredible how much fun can be fitted into one day here at Moreton Show. Come to the show and go home with happy memories.

Moreton-in-Marsh Show

Farming has some good years ahead


WE have supported the show for 25 years, he said. I got involved because my father-in-law, Major David Chetwode, used to breed Jacob sheep and he showed them at Moreton Show. Mr Keswick still breeds sheep on the 1,100 acre estate at Rockcliffe but nowadays it is the Lleyn breed which he shows at Moreton and the estate entirely devoted to sheep also enters as many of the Societys farms and crops competitions as possible.

This years show president is Simon Keswick, of Stow, who told Gerry Barnett how he got involved

Presidents message
He is full of praise for the society and Moreton

Show. I personally think they are wonderful institutions and a very important focal point for the rural population and to help people from the towns to understand much of what is involved in the agricultural industry. And, of course, it is very educational. Mr Keswick said he was pleased that show officials were this year making a big effort to get more youngsters involved on show day. Looking to the future, Mr Keswick said he did not believe in revolution

but rather in evolution. So we should be looking towards what our stakeholders want and adapt without being too radical. He said: I hope Moreton Show continues for many years to come. I personally believe farming has got some good years ahead of it and so hopefully people will want to go on supporting it. I am very much looking forward to the show and seeing the best of what all our exhibitors have to offer.

Champion farmers are on a roll with awards


Husband and wife team could make it a hat trick
AVID and Rachel Fisher, who farm at Manor Farm, Hampnett, near Northleach, winners of Moreton Show societys champion farm competition from Guiting Manor Farms Ltd as runnersup, have been associated with the society for many years. It completed a prestigious double for the Fisher family who were also winners of the Burford Farming Clubs champion farm competition and they are also awaiting the results of the Gloucestershire Root Fruit and Grain Society competition. Winning all three competitions would be highly unusual and might even be unique, said Tim Gardner, former secretary of the Moreton Show Society. Mr and Mrs Fisher farm 628 acres surrounding the village of Hampnett, producing corn and beef on the tenanted farm where Mr Fisher has

progressed from manager to tenant of the late John Oldacre and now The John Oldacre Foundation. The 74-cow suckler herd is pure-bred Simmentals, some

of which are registered as pedigree with a view to sales of breeding stock. Winter wheat, winter oil seed rape and spring linseed are grown on the arable area. Conservation is an important feature of the

farm, which is in Natural Englands Entry Level and Higher Level Stewardship Schemes. There are long-established beetle banks, conservation margins and hundreds of trees have been planted since they took on the tenancy on All Fools Day, 1996, the day the BSE crisis broke. The farm is home to six rare breeds of birds and the source of the River Leach. Commenting on the family success, Mr Fisher said: These competitions sharpen the edge of progressive farming and keep us all on our toes. Guiting Manor Farms Ltd is managed by Nick Bumford and farms as arms length tenants of Guiting Manor Amenity Trust. The estate comprises some 1.600 acres of which 1,200 are arable and the remainder sheep maintained, species rich, limestone grassland and

both newly created and seminatural woods. Cropping is about one third each of winter wheat, oil seed rape and barley, the barley split between winter and spring varieties. The farm is also in the Higher Level Stewardship Scheme and is heavily involved with the Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group. Pollen and nectar boundaries have been created round most of the woodlands, together with wild grass field corners and birds are important here, too, the farm being monitored by the RSPB and the British Trust for Ornithology. Moreton Shows Champion Farm Competition puts the winners of the first three size groups in the first round against the size group winners from the previous year to produce an overall champion and reserve.

Pub recruits new helper


I
N four years time, Donnington Brewery will celebrate its 150th anniversary and the newest member of the team at one of its awardwinning Cotswold pubs will be there to mark the milestone with them. Four-month-old black labrador puppy Donnington takes his name from the brewery near Stow which has been producing fine ales since 1865. Donny, as he is known to his owners and regulars, has been making his presence felt in the short time he was been living with new landlord of the Coach and Horses in Longborough, Diana Bate, with his lovable and cheeky antics, even if he does dig up the garden occasionally. Diana took over the village pub in February and has paid tribute to her fantastic team for helping her settle in. Donnys father Bobby is the resident black labrador at The Black Horse in Naunton and it was at this pub where Dianas son Peter Bate has run proceedings for the past six years, where he made his first steps in the world before moving over to Longborough. Diana is also running a Longboroughs Got Talent contest on Saturday, September 10, and is encouraging people to get in touch if they want to perform. We will have a panel of judges and with a lot of interest already, it is promising to be an unmissable occasion, she said. Donnington, a name synonymous with quality, brews its ales using water from a natural spring, close to the mill pond at its picturesque brewery. It supplies a host of inns and restaurants across the country with other Cotswold pubs under its banner including The Mount Inn, Stanton, and The Plough at Ford. Diana is planning regular monthly events at the Coach and Horses and anyone interested in taking part in Longboroughs Got Talent is asked to contact her on 01451 830325 or e-mail diana.bate@bt connect.com.

Big day for sheep


HE Kendall & Davies National Show of Cotswold Sheep which will take place as part of Moreton Show, is the most important show in the Cotswold Sheep Societys calendar. It is when the largest number of the very best Cotswold sheep can be seen parading round the show ring, this year under the eye of judge Richard Mumford, of Evesham, who will begin his task at 9.30am. In the ewes and rams he will be looking for large, solid sheep with white faces and legs, while their noses should be as black as possible. Their fleeces will, by show day, be a thick mass of lustrous, crimped wool and they will indeed look like Cotswold Lions. The lambs, however, will be carrying an attractive longer fleece, which appears to hang in ringlets. It has taken

months of preparation to get each sheep to look at its best, said Angela Reid, of the Cotswold Sheep Society. The champion will be the product of not only months of nurturing but also of generations of careful breeding. In a rare breed such as the Cotswold, the number of bloodlines are limited. The result is it takes years of experience and many hours of studying the Society Flock Book to find that perfect combination of ewe and ram. The Cotswold Sheep Society stand will be alongside the Cotswold sheep show ring. There will be experts on hand all day to answer any questions. There will be merchandise, too, a range of beautiful postcards and notelets, sold to raise funds to help secure the future of this historic, but endangered, breed. Please do come and see for yourself, said Mrs Reid.

where you can take the weight off you feet while you find out about all things green and beautiful. As well as doing a couple of short talks about the importance of our native bees, Ill be on hand during the day to chat with anyone interested in knowing more about wildlife gardening, the importance of biodiversity and permaculture (If you dont know what permaculture is, come along and ask me). Ill also be giving away some useful green freebies and offering loads of tips on how we can all live greener, more earth-friendly lifestyles. I wont be on my own in the tent. Ill be joined by a team of experienced gardeners and growers, including Ann Crane, who will be bringing along a selection of bee-attracting plants that she grows in her back garden in Ledbury; Woody, from Bubblehouse Worms, near Worcester, who will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about composting worms and wormeries; and the lovely Rachel Harwood, an organic gardener from Stratford who I met when we judged the allotments competition together. I do hope youll find time during the show to come along and ask us questions or listen to our talks. Wed love to meet you and share our beautiful space with you.

We saw some very good examples of community spirit and they were all worthy of commendation, said Brigit Strawbridge, who was joined on the judging panel by Rachel Harwood, of Harwood Horticulture, and Gerry Barnett, of the Journal. When we came to tot up our marks at the end of the tour it was all very close. Piece Hedge, Bourton, came out on top, with Little Rissington second and Evenlode Lane, Moreton, third.

Show really puts town on the map


ORETON will be placed firmly on the map this weekend when 20,000 visitors arrive in the area. Moreton Show on Saturday, held on part of the Batsford Estate just outside town, is one of the largest one-day agricultural shows in the country. With entries up this year in all the classes, more people than ever are expected to take the opportunity to visit the town itself, which has been welcomed by town council mayor Rod Hooper. He said: Its a great achievement for the Moreton Show to carry on like it has been all these years. Its a credit to the town and to all the people involved. Its a total community success. Although strangers to the area may think it odd to find a major outdoor show being held in a marsh the name for the , historic town comes from its position on the borders or marches of four counties. These were Gloucestershire, in which the town sits, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and

Worcestershire. The last of these no longer extends much beyond Fish Hill in Broadway, but before local authorities were reorganised in the last century there was a small island of Worcestershire just outside town. The point at which these four counties met can be seen at the Four Shires Stone, which stands by the A44 a few miles out of town towards Chipping Norton. This monument for many years graced the front page of this newspapers earlier incarnation The Four Shires Advertiser. The town also sits on the crossroads of two major routes, the A44 and the Fosseway. This unique position enjoyed by the town has guaranteed that it has always been a major hub of trade of commerce. To this day, every Tuesday, it hosts one of the biggest street markets for miles around, and its picturesque High Street maintains an enviable range of independent shops. In fact, some say that if you cant find it in Moreton, then it aint worth having.

Rents continue to rise to 705 per month
AFTER the sixth consecutive month of rent rises, private sector tenants have seen rents increase by 4.2% in the past year and now pay an average 705 per month, says a survey. But the latest buy-to-let index from LSL Property Services, which owns the UKs largest lettings agent network including Your Move and Reeds Rains, says many landlords are seeing the capital value of their homes fall, as rental income rises. In July, the average private sector rent in England and Wales rose 0.6% to 705 per month, surpassing the previous high of 701 in June. With annual inflation at 4.2%, the average rent is now 29 per month higher than July 2010. London hit a new high of 1,009 per month in July, an annual increase of 7.1%. T he next biggest rises were in the North East (5.5%), followed by East and West Midlands (4.8%). David Newnes, estate agency managing director of LSL Property Services, said: Demand from frustrated buyers each month is underpinning buoyant competition for rental homes, enabling landlords to increase prices.

Cotswolds the place to move to


IF youre thinking of moving to the country, you should definitely consider the Cotswolds. This picturesque region offers a wonderful way of life, a safe environment to bring up children and is just an hour or so fromLondon. We have excellent schools and colleges,and for the g rown ups theres no shortage of Michelin star restaurants and excellent gastro pubs, making this a highly sociable foodies paradise, says Sam Butler, senior partner at Cotswolds property specialists Butler Sherborn. Many people find that once they move to the Cotswolds, they never want to move again. Some families have lived in the region for several generations, while newcomers soon appreciate the community spirit and openness of the villages. In recent years, celebrities have caught on to the quality of life and relaxing nature of the area, only a short commute from London, with famous artists, authors and stars of stage and screen establishing young roots in some of its finest old properties. Whether you buy a cosy cottage or a rambling rectory, its possible to live very well in the region, Sam adds. T here are so many opportunities to get to know people and make new friends, and perhaps not surprisingly, much activity focuses around food and food-related events.
