Fresh faces needed for spring show to continue

Each April, the Alnwick Spring Show has brought colour and life to the town and district, attracting entrants and visitors from far and wide.

It is organised by an award-winning committee who have, over the 13 years of the show's existence, garnered the expertise, equipment and enthusiasm for staging the event.

However, time has caught up with several of the longer serving committee members, who have now decided to relinquish their duties, and an injection of new blood is needed to take the show forward.

Gill Starkey, show coordinator, said: “While the show has the support, the finance and the knowledge to continue, it lacks hands on deck. The sad fact is that without extra help the 2022 show will not take place.”
