At our recent Saturday working bee, President Keith Kennedy announced the 2016 Show Personality. Sue Hill, the 2015 Show Personality, was honoured to pass on the medallion to Geoff Boscombe, a well-deserving recipient, who continually tends to the showgrounds throughout the year, ensuring they remain in show-ready condition.
Created in 2002 under the presidency of Eric Dudley, it was decided the honour would be given to one of the many life members for the inaugural year, with Wynne Hawkins presented the award at the Show Ball.
Originally, the task of the Show Personality was to promote the show and attend pre-show activities, which included the judging of colouring, gardening and stock competitions. However, over the past 14 years, that role of Show Personality has become one of promotion of the show, and thanking someone who has done a lot for the show and community.
Geoff is certainly a well-deserving recipient, and we congratulation him on this honour.
