About your Good Cause
Why we need your help
SWMAS works to support the Agricultural community and last year the Society provided support grants for young farmers across the County and now the Society are looking to increase this grant funding during the current financial crisis which is effecting the whole of the farming community.
Planning for the annual Shropshire County Show is well underway and this year’s show will take place on Saturday the 23rd of May 2015.
The Show will again incorporate the Shropshire County Horse Show and as always will have a very Agricultural feel, where our objective is to promote everything that is positive about our fantastic Industry.
The Society has gone from strength to strength over the last few years after a very difficult period, but with a new board of Trustees and securing a Showground Sponsor for the first time in the Greenhous group, the future is looking very bright.
We need your help to fulfil our ambitions. Our weekly lottery will help the Society to make more funds available to support our agricultural community and ensure that the Society continues to thrive.
About the Society
The Shropshire County Agricultural Show has its roots in the late nineteenth century when it was launched as part of the co-operative venture - The Shropshire and West Midlands Agricultural Society.
Since the year of 1875, life and times of agriculture have undergone massive changes in farming techniques, machinery and technology. But, despite this, the West Mid has always kept abreast of every new trend - and still does.
The show has been going for an impressive century and a quarter and throughout this farmers and their employees, and in the recent years not only farmers but a wider range of people, have come together to enjoy themselves in the merry month of May.
The promoter of this Unity Lottery is Ian Bebbington, West Mid Showground, Berwisk Road, Shrewsbury, SY1 2PF
