KENT COUNTY SHOW

                                                                                                                     12th - 14th July 2013

The Kent County Show Ground. Detling. Maidstone. Kent



This year & for the last few of years now, I have found a much greater presence of "Kent Life & Crafts" stalls and displays than previous year. This is great as it is what a County show should be about with Kent Traditional Crafts, local radio stations, Bee Keeping , horse & hounds, bird displays , A Superb Vintage & Heritage section displays and many local business's showing their traditional crafts of yester year.


  


  


  


The weather was good this year, unlike last year when it was a very muddy, wet show with car parks having to close to allow tractors in to pull out the stuck vehicles.


This year in the Heritage section of the show there were some great vehicles and displays from a well restored Ford C8000 Fire Pump, which was used by the Flemmington Fire Brigade in New Jersey, USA.

This vehicle was one of the fire vehicles which attended the 9/11 tragedy in New York.

It is now owned and restored by Graham & David Povey from Buckinghamshire,


 



to Miniture Steam Engines, Vintage Vehilces, Models, Sign Writing. It was all here in the Heritage Section.

There were many tractors here but as you can see the majority were Fordsons.

This together with Kent's FFA member Rodney Broadley's collection / show winners it turned out to be one of the best single owned Fordson tractor displays that has been at this show since 2010 when our Kent Area Rep - Rodney Gibson organised the superb FFA Expo IX, here at the Kent County Show.

The "Heritage Section" of the show continues to

Grow from Strength to Strength, mainly Thanks to the hard work of

Bernard & Steve Pike.

These 2 guys with of course the help of many others have work from the end of one year's Kent Show to the beginning of the next. I take my hat off to Bernard & Steve, because with out them the Heritage section would not be as good and contiue to grow as it does every year.


Again another superb Kent County Show, I look forward to next years and hopefully the weather will be as good.
