Westbury show honour boards

NewsJoanne EisemannComment

February 2018

WITH THE 2018 Westbury Show celebrating its 155th year, the Society has undertaken to record the names of office bearers who have served the Society since 1902. Unfortunately, records prior to that date are unavailable.

Two new honour boards have been painstakingly crafted by John Johnston of Westbury. The boards feature a macrocarpa trim which has been moulded from timber taken from the very old trees that have flanked the grandstand for decades. The trees were deemed unsafe & were removed five years ago.

Long-time supporter of the Westbury Show, Mr Michael Polly along with Life Member, Kerry Kilby have sponsored the honour boards.

The Society is indebted to Mr Jeff Reader of Westbury, who spent many hours signwriting the titles of the boards and the names of the Office bearers.

It is hoped that as many people as possible who have held office as President, Secretary or Treasurer of the Show along with family members or representatives will attend the unveiling ceremony which is to be held at 2pm on Sunday 4th March 2018. Those interested in attending please contact Judy Kilby: 0439 334 663.
