Moreton Show 2019

Sheldon Bosley Knight - Sponsor of Moreton Show 2019

Sheldon Bosley Knight were very proud to once again sponsor the Moreton Show, which this year was celebrating its 70th anniversary.

The Moreton Show is a highlight of the agricultural show calendar and given our strong rural agency roots it is always a highlight of our annual calendar too.

We were delighted to sponsor the Livestock Area on Show Day and the Best Cotswold Shepherd competition which will be awarded in February 2020.

This year, events in the Grand Arena came to a spectacular conclusion with one of the biggest parade of champions.

The Grand Parade was a breathtaking display of cattle, sheep and goats which had the commentator full of praise for British farming.

Mark Cleverdon, from Wittersham in Kent, a renowned livestock auctioneer and Moreton Show regular who commentates at several shows throughout the summer, said: “I see a better line-up at Moreton Show than anywhere else. It is exceptional.”

Inside the produce marquee, Sheldon Bosley Knight’s Sarah Baldwin from the Block Management Team was busy judging the preserves section. Sarah, who is an official WI Cookery Judge, really enjoyed her task and said afterwards “I was judging the preserves, so as you can imagine after 2 hours in that tent I was on a real sugar high and needed copious amounts of coffee!

When asked about her judging credentials she said “you need a love of food, patience (lots of it, especially if someone doesn’t win who thought they should have), and you have to attend a very intensive course at WI College after you have shadowed other judges for 12 months. Being a WI member helps but you don’t have to be”.

A number of other Sheldon Bosley Knight team members also attended the show and really enjoyed the day which attracted a record number of entries and features the very best of British Farming and the countryside.

Sheldon Bosley Knight would like to congratulate the organisers on the success of this 70th Anniversary Show and we are already looking forward to next year’s event on 5th September 2020.
