Show season has begun…

Show season has begun – and it was kicked off in style as our new members of the team were on the ground to welcome thousands of visitors to the 2015 Newport event.
The 106th Newport Show is believed to have broken visitor number records after the rain stayed away on July 11.
And we were among the stands and staff enjoying the day.
We were very pleased to introduce some new members of the team to clients old and new.
Charis Denham and Alasdair Barne both attended the show to meet and greet the agricultural community.
Paul Madeley, founder and director of Madeleys, said: “It was our second year at the event and the Newport and District Agricultural Society once again put on a great show with the Chetwynd Deer Park filled with thousands of visitors throughout the day.
“It was great for me to take the new members of the team to our first show of the season since their arrival and we were pleased to welcome clients, old and new, to the stand.
“We hope to return to the show next year.”

Alasdair, also a qualified member Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), moved to Shropshire in September 2009 and started working for a regional rural surveying company assisting with the general estate management on a number of rural estates located in Shropshire and North Lincolnshire.

They joined Tom Bayliss at the show, who moved back to Shropshire after working in Lincolnshire on estate management for the Tollemache family. He started with us as a trainee rural surveyor in February this year.
This year’s Newport Show featured motorcycle stunts, vintage tractors, horticulture, craft, a school’s marquee, a dog show and a horse and livestock competition.
There was also a wide range of regional delicacies available and cookery displays by TV chef Paul Rankin, who entertained the crowds with two cookery demonstrations in the food court.
