September is an important month for the Pigs with funds raised via our support at the hugely popular Alresford Agricultural how.
Dodging the recent unseasonal (& unwelcomed) weather, this year’s Show was blessed with fine & dry conditions and attracted ,000’s of happy visitors who once again enjoyed the sights and sounds of a traditional Agricultural Show.
As usual, we were on hand to help the Show Committee organise and man the car parks and entry gates as well as taking on many important duties as Safety Stewards. To complete all these tasks, we drew on superb support from a wide range of friends, family & ex-Pigs (respectfully & collectively known as Old Boars) as well as local clubs and committees, including the Alresford Rugby Club, Old Alresford Cricket Club, Tichborne Cricket Club, Ropley Parish Hall Committee, helpers from 345 Playgroup, Sun Hill Juniors & Infants and Cheriton schools.
It’s certainly fair to say that it was truly a terrific community effort – and one enjoyed by all who took part.
