Welcome from the Chairman
A warm welcome to all of you visiting our Show today, it is set to be a true showcase for the very best of Dales Farming, food and the countryside. Thank you very much for your support, we hope you enjoy Malham Show – a Show for everyone!
As ever our committee have been working hard towards this year’s Show. I am pleased to welcome our new attraction ‘Junior Kick-start’; this motorcycle trials competition will showcase the talent of our junior riders as they tackle a variety of daring obstacles. We have also introduced ‘commentary’ to the Drystone walling competition, this will hopefully provide you with a greater understanding of this traditional craft!
There are a whole host of events and attractions to be enjoyed, including the fantastic Dales food and craft marquee, childrens sports, ferret racing, dog classes, horses, vintage vehicles and much more. The ever popular charity auction of produce will provide their usual entertaining finale to the day, as local auctioneer Sam Bradley sells everything from a prize winning jar of jam to a cake with a soggy bottom! Last year we managed to raise £760 for our chosen charity Manorlands Hospice.
It is now my great pleasure to welcome our President Mr David Sutcliffe and his wife Lisa. David is the founder of the local building company Sutcliffe Construction, he and his team helped the Show greatly by designing and constructing our new building. He has been a great supporter of the Show for many years. I hope the weather is kind and David and his guests have an enjoyable day.
With thanks to all the landowners, committee members, volunteers and stewards who all make the show possible.
What people are saying…
Really glad we decided to visit Malham this weekend, lovely cows and sheep to see close up, brought some lovely meat pies (duck/pork+rhubarb, and chicken and chorizo ) some beautiful creamy milk (just about to be made into rice pudding ) ice cream and amazing banana, sultana and apricot fruit loaf. So glad the Sun was shining.
