Your View: Kadina Show info sought

FURTHER to my previous letter (YPCT 30-10-18), the Kadina Show committee is asking sporting groups and organisations to respond with historical information about their association with the current showgrounds, either participating at showtime or of their own use of the grounds and or buildings over the years.

The committee asks people who have been involved with the show society, or have participated in past events at the show, to go through their old memorabilia and dig out any photos of the showgrounds, old show books that might be stored in a cupboard somewhere, or an old certificate presented to a family member who received a prize at the show. Even perhaps a written account of what their family member did at the show, anything that may be of interest. Just give us a call or email it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

This information will be compiled into a book detailing the history of the show society and will also add to the history of the district. Recognition to those who respond will be included in the book.

Yes, the gates are going to be restored and we are working behind the scenes to get this done. We ask all to be patient and continue to watch the space.

Unfortunately, we are like a number of other organisations in the district who have an ageing membership and we need assistance to achieve our 150th year in 2020, so we need additional members and fresh ideas. If you can help please come along to our annual general meeting at 7.30pm on Wednesday, November 21 (advert this edition).

Any offers to volunteer to help set up the showgrounds show week and on show days would be greatly appreciated. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or ring 0474 720 716.
