Countdown Underway to Greenmount Centenary Show 2012

The Greenmount Centenary Show is being heralded as one of the showcase family attractions for this summer. With less than 100 days to go, the Show will take place on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 June 2012, 100 years after the first students commenced their education at Greenmount.

Paul McHenry, Chairman of the Show’s organising committee explained how preparations are shaping up: “As we count down the months before the Show kicks off, we have at the moment planned for over 60 attractions, including vintage machinery demonstrations, YFCU demonstrations, Koi-Carp displays, plus you will have the opportunity to participate in food tasting panels. This is in addition to well-established programmes that have been run in the past on crafts, cookery demonstrations, wildlife exhibitions, floristry demonstrations and not forgetting the ever-popular plant sales.

“Animals are always a big attraction for young and old alike and there will be plenty to see, right from the traditional farm animals such as horses to the more exotic animals such as birds of prey. Weather permitting, there may even be the opportunity for those attending to get a bird’s eye view of Greenmount and the surrounding countryside.”
