New show president

A new president has been elected for a local agricultural
show. The Newport and District Agricultural Society has
announced that John Gough, who also has a strong family
connection to the role, will take the reins for this year.

Mr Gough and his family have a long association with the
show, with both his stepfather and grandfather previously
holding the title of president. He said, “I am excited to be
part of the show’s continuing growth. We are very keen to
move with the times and cater for all the varied interests
of our visitors.”

“One of the challenges we face as an agricultural show
is a smaller number of people involved in farming.
Consequently, while keeping this at our heart, we have also
looked to expand and encourage other areas of the show.”

This year’s Show, will take place on Saturday 11 July. For
