Would you like like to volunteer for the Show?



This years Messingham Horse & Foal Show is coming together nicely according to new Show Secretary Stephen Coulman.

“I’m in my first year as Show Secretary (following on from the indomitable John England’s forty year stint!) and I’ve got my fingers crossed that I don’t drop a clanger. However, I’m certain the guidance from John and my fellow volunteer Show Committee Members will get me through.

“I joined the Show Committee six years ago and have thoroughly enjoyed myself even though I have never ridden a horse and have no particular desire to do so. I’ve helped mark out the show ground, collect rent from the trade stands, taken money on the gate, moved toilets, re-built horse jumps, directed traffic, picked up litter and occupied the beer tent at the end of the day. I can honestly say I’ve met some great people from the village, and wider afield.

“The Show Committee is made up entirely of unpaid of volunteers who take a pride in keeping our village show and traditions alive. We are always looking for new Committee Members who can bring their particular expertise and skill set from their  lives, and contribute to the development and future success of the show.

“If you’ve approx 30 hours, plus the show weekend / show day, to spare a year why not contact me and join us? Alternatively why not help out at the show itself, as we’re often short of help on the day. A couple of hours will make a real difference spelling someone for their lunch.”

Falconry display 7 June

Birds Of Prey 228 edited

The English School of Falconry Display team will be the spectacular attraction at this year’s Show on 7 June. Falconry displays offer a unique and unforgettable experience.

This year we’ll see two twenty minute flying displays, with each one being different. You can see the amazing team in action with free flying American Bald Eagles, African Fish Eagle, Falcons, Hawks and Owls.  These are accompanied by a running commentary, providing facts about the birds, keeping it light hearted, entertaining and fun.

Public participation is encouraged in their displays and children who help in the arena will receive a small gift to remind them of their day.

The team will be on hand with a large static display of a variety of birds including different species of Owls, Hawks, Eagles and Falcons. The falconers will also be available for visitors to talk to, ask questions and for photo opportunities.
