Local organisations and charities receive donations from Show Council

The Chairman and Council of the Heathfield Agricultural Show are pleased to announce that over £30,000 has been donated to local organisations and charities who helped with the smooth running of the Show in 2023.

Every one of these organisations played their part to make Show Day enjoyable and safe for our visitors.  We would like to thank them all for becoming involved and making the day such a success. 

Brighter Heathfield helped with litter collection during the Show, Burwash Scouts descended on the Showground on the Sunday after the Show to clear up all the litter, Claude Jessett Trust provided the free Park and Ride Service, Cuckoo for Cancer provided the refreshments in the Sponsors’ marquee.

East Hoathly Bonfire Society erected all the hedgerow boards, Heathfield Silver Band played on the bandstand and Heathfield Street Pastors manned the Judges and Stewards marquee all day.

Horam Scouts spent the whole day running up and down from the Showing rings to the Secretary’s office delivering results, Tonbridge Juddians Rugby Club manned the ticket gates, Riding for the Disabled were nominated by the Vets who gave their services free on Show Day and Sussex Young Farmers helped with the dismantling and washing of all the pig pens. 

The following organisations fielded teams of stewards to help guide the visitors around the Showground:  Cross in Hand Bowls Club, Hailsham Young Farmers, Heathfield Rotary Club, Heathfield Rugby Football Club, Mayfield Bonfire, Wealden Wheelers.

Without the help of organisations such as these and all the volunteers that make up the Show committees, the show would not happen. Thank you all.

If you would like your organisation to volunteer in 2024, please send your details to the show secretary -  secretary@heathfieldshow.org.
