50 years at East Fenton

A milestone of continuous employment was reached recently, when George Renton celebrated his 50th year of service at East Fenton Farm. To commemorate this tremendous achievement, George was presented with a Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland Long Service Certificate and Medal.

 

George started his career at East Fenton way back in March 1971 and over 50 years on – having worked for three generations of the same family – he is now about to embark upon a well earnt retirement!

 

The Society congratulates George on this remarkable achievement, and wishes him a very long and happy retirement.

New Look for the Haddington Show

Throughout lockdown, we’ve been working behind the scenes to refresh our brand and website.

The Haddington Show is one of Scotland’s oldest agricultural events and our logo has represented the ethos of the society for many years.

We commissioned branding experts, Our Agency, to design us a new identity that captured our values as well as our legacy. We love our new look, which has also been applied to the website, giving us a contemporary image while reflecting our heritage.

For the 2022 show, we will also be launching a new booking system via ShowBiz which will allow all class entries, vendors and ticket sales to be fulfilled online. More news will follow.

Scotland Opens Up

While the government has announced plans to begin opening up venues and allowing events to take place, we feel that it has come too late for this year’s Haddington Show. The show takes an enormous amount of organisation, with planning taking almost twelve months. Therefore, we made the decision earlier this year to once again postpone the show.

Delivering a first class event with visitors safety in mind is our focus for 2022, when the show will take place once again.

2021 Show Postponed

Once again, we have decided to postpone the Haddington Show because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The show attracts thousands of visitors and exhibitors every year and public safety must be our priority. We are busy working behind the scenes to re-establish the show next year, with plans for great entertainment, demonstrations and showcasing the best of Scottish Agriculture from across our region.

A new date for 2022 will be announced soon.
