Working for Business and Agriculture with The Cumberland Show – Sponsors Evening



Posted: January 23rd, 2015

ImageDavid Allen AgriBusiness were kindly invited to The Cumberland Show Sponsors Evening on Thursday 22 January.  I attended the event that was held at Carrs Milling Industries’ head office in Stanwix, Carlisle along with all four of the AgriBusiness Directors, Stuart, David, Michael and Paul.

Tim Davies, CEO of Carrs Milling Industries, welcomed us all and gave a short introduction explaining how proud he is that Carrs are the main sponsors of such a great agricultural show.  John Stevenson MP was guest speaker for the evening and talked about how fantastic The Cumberland Show is for the growth of the agricultural community.  From this, Robert Wharton, who is expected to be the new Chairman of The Cumberland Show if voted in at the AGM next week, gave us all an overview on what is to be expected for the 177th show and the exciting improvements from last year’s show.  Robert also joked about how for the last two years (while Gillian Potts was Chairman) we were all treated to glorious sunshine for the show and how we all have our fingers crossed we will enjoy the same weather this year!

Throughout the evening we were treated to delicious canapés and had the opportunity to meet and mix with other previous, and potential, sponsors and supporters of the show.  David Allen AgriBusiness are extremely proud to be associated with, and sponsor, The Cumberland Show and are looking forward to the day.  

We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening and would like to thank The Cumberland Show committee for inviting us and wish them all the best of luck for The Cumberland Show 2015.
