The drizzly weather did not dampen spirits at the Honley Show

15th Jun, 2017

Some of you may know that we were one of the main sponsors of this year’s Honley Show. Despite the poor weather on Saturday, our outlook remained sunny, and we still managed to enjoy the fun packed event!  

The Applegate Properties team headed down bright and early on the day itself, to set up the stand and prepare for our many visitors! Laura Simpson, Laura-Anne Towson, Gwen Kaye and our MD Amy Wray held the fort, collecting valuable money for the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, whilst handing out some free goodies. We even held a mini competition, where one lucky person won a bottle of fizz!

As the day progressed we ventured from behind our stand to take some Polaroid pictures, featuring farm-themed props! It was great to see so many people embracing their country bumpkin roots, in snaps which included sitting on Dolly the sheep, and holding a ‘farmer’s moustache’.

Our super busy morning meant we’d worked up a hearty appetite, so we were happy when lunch time came around. Our group headed to the food tent where we were joined by some of the fabulous team from Ramsdens, and a local celebrity – the Holme Valley Mayor!  

Once the delicious food had been devoured by all, we had a wander around to see just what else the show had to offer. There were many unique trade stalls to visit, including The Crusty Pie Company, Simply Smellies and Sweets of Yesteryear, with a range of items available, such as delicious homemade pies, confectionary and other distinctive products.

And the many competitions that took place throughout the day added an extra sense of excitement to the event, whilst showing off the top animals from the area, and their talents. Our MD Amy Wray, said: “the day not only brought back memories of me competing with my horse years ago – making it an extra special one for me – but it was also a great opportunity to celebrate our beautiful countryside.”

The show certainly promoted the amazing work that goes on in our area, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended from the Applegate Properties team.

We’d also like to thank everyone who came to visit us on our stand – being a sponsor for the Honley Show was an absolute honour!
