Annual General Meeting
Press release – Monday 29 November 2021
Preparations are now well underway for the 2022 Mirfield Show which will be held on the Showground, Huddersfield Road, on Sunday 21st August 2022.
Jonathan Evans, the Show committee Chairman says “We are busy at the moment planning our “comeback” show after two years of no shows. The next meeting will be our Annual General Meeting on Monday 13th December. We are looking for interested people to join us on our committee, or indeed, maybe just as volunteers for the day itself. Everyone is welcome to attend. Maybe you would like to come along just to see what we are about?”
Louise Hardy, Vice Chairman says “We do think of ourselves as a big family. We help and support each other. There is a huge range of skills across the committee. Nobody walked in with those skills pre-existing – they have been developed over the years. Many of us have surprised ourselves with what we can do! If you think this might interest you, why not give it a go?”
Louise continues “We have just hosted an additional event especially for the run up to Christmas at the Community Centre in Mirfield. It was a Christmas Craft afternoon for the participants to create their own festive items such as wreaths, Christmas cards, table decorations and more. The best news – it was absolutely free to come with all materials provided too. The tickets went like hot cakes – 50 in total. We had a great afternoon.
We must thank the Community Centre, Westfield Nurseries and Maughan’s Bakery.”

Joseph Kelly, Head of Marketing says “We are delighted to be chosen by the Co-op in their Local Community Fund as a local cause for donations. When Co-op members buy selected products and services, 1p from every pound spent goes to support local causes like ours. It’s a great scheme whereby local people can support local organisations.”
