A Message from Martletwy Show President Hugh Harrison-Allen
We are absolutely delighted to be able to welcome you to the Martletwy Show after what has been a turbulent time for us all.
Life is now getting back to normal and despite the challenges, we have been determined to bring you the best show we possibly can.
In keeping with its traditional agricultural links there will be the usual classes for horses, cattle, sheep, and rare breeds. Judging takes place throughout the day in the rings scattered around the Showground.
It is a wonderful place for those from the town to view the best of British, and for those from the country to catch up with friends old and new.
There will of course be the attractions of Classic Cars and tractors and we will also be seeing a parade of the Cresselly Foxhounds.
This will be a very special Show for everyone involved and a great deal of work has gone into making the event as safe as possible for us all to enjoy.
It is a great privilege and honour to be Life President of the Martletwy Show, my family have been connected with the Society since its inception.
Thank you to all the judges and stewards, and particularly the sponsors, without whom the show would not take place. I would definitely like to thank our Secretary and her team for all their time and effort.
A welcome from the Chairman of Martletwy Show
As Chairman, I look forward to welcoming you to our 70th Martletwy and District YFC Show.
The show has so much to offer to everyone from our agricultural livestock and equine classes, attractions ring with lots of different events throughout the day, featuring the vintage tractor and vehicle parade.
