Saddleworth Show 2015
The Saddleworth Show 2015 - a joint project between the Saddleworth and Oldham Metro Rotary Clubs - will be held on Sunday 28th June at Well-i-hole Farm Greenfield. Show Chairman Steve Hughes of the Oldham Metro Club told us: The plan this year is to take the show back to its roots as a Country Fair with acts, attractions and activities for children and families which build on that theme. It is going to be a great show - we are planning to have Falcons, Chainsaw Carvers, Donkeys, Llamas, a petting zoo, sheep shearing, Sheep Dogs and Dog training, Classic Cars, Dry Stone walling, a climbing wall, craft and sport demonstrations, archery, Fly fishing and a casting contest, and much more. The very popular Duck Race will take place in the afternoon on the River Tame which flows through the site. We will have a stage so that Bands and our Young Talent Showcase will continue. All that backed up by the usual Craft, Charity and Food stalls. It will, as ever, be a great afternoon out for all the family.
With the Country Show theme we thought that it would be good this year to stage it on a working farm with the additional major advantage of parking on site.
Committee Secretary Mel Farrar said, “We have by no means ruled out Churchill for future shows – it is a really good venue in a magnificent setting - but since we were making a change from the school we thought this was a good time to try something entirely new. “
