Three Counties to use Malverns permanent halls
Three Counties Championship Show, taking place at the Three
Counties Showground, Malvern from 10-13 June 2002, will be
staged in exhibition halls, instead of marquees for the second
Show organisers, the Three Counties Agricultural Society had hoped to return the event to its traditional location this year, but its decision not to stage livestock competitions at the parallel Three Counties Countryside Show, leaves Wye and Avon Halls empty, and the move is based on a cost-saving exercise.
Said Showground General Manager, Tony Halls: The carefully considered decision to cancel livestock competitions at this years agricultural show was made following DEFRAs proposed rulings issued on 8 February 2002.
As a registered charity, we are obliged to control costs and in light of the fact that the aftermath of the foot and mouth crisis is still with us, cancelling tentage and moving the Dog Show into the halls, means we can reduce our financial outlay quite significantly.
Wye and Avon Halls are used for other National Working and Pastoral Breeds and accommodation, indoor and outdoor show rings and benching will meet all criteria laid down by the Kennel Club.
We have also allowed adequate space for trade stands, disabled, public and exhibitors parking, exercise areas and catering facilities.
