A new president has been apointed to lead the Fife Agricultural Association Ltd.

At the end of the group’s AGM held in the Howe of Fife Rugby Club, Cupar on Monday, October 27, Mike Logan handed over the president’s medal to Allan Stewart who will hold this position for the next two years.

Mike Black also took over the role of vice president at the same time.

As a registered Scottish charity and a non-profit organisation, The Fife Agricultural Association Ltd is run by a group of around 38 volunteers.

At the same meeting there were a further nine individuals recommended for appointment and accepted as new committee members, while John Whiteford who served as Trade Stand convener stepped down after seven years on the Committee.

This takes the committee to an impressive 46 volunteers.

In September the Association was delighted to be nominated and short-listed for Organisation of the Year at the Fife Voluntary Action Volunteering and Voluntary Sector Awards, and was invited to the awards ceremony held at The Old Course Hotel in St Andrews on Wednesday , September 24.

Attended by over 200 people these awards continue to grow, and though the winner on the night was the Samaritans of Dunfermline the Association is very proud to have been short-listed.

The Show gratefully receives any support and is always willing to discuss sponsorship and advertising packages with any business or individual interested in supporting their local Agricultural Show and hard-working non-profit charity.

The committee continues to look for keen committee members and/or helpers to help organise, run and build The Fife Show.
