Moreton Show has ‘super sub’ Lucy Mellor as secretary for this year’s show on Saturday, September 2nd.
Lucy has taken on the secretary’s job for a year while show secretary, Sarah Taylor looks after her new baby son, Ted, who was born in January.
Lucy, who studied at Harper Adams University in Shropshire, has a wide experience of working in the agriculture, food and events industries.
She’s done everything from overseeing celery packing and sourcing salad from Kenya, to setting up the Asparagus Festival in Evesham and helping to run the Royal Show, the Royal Festival of the Horse and the Livestock Event at the NEC in Birmingham. She’s also managed events for fishing and shooting magazines.
Lucy formerly worked with the Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers and helped set up the Women in Dairy initiative, which promotes training and networking for women in the dairy industry.
Lucy said: ‘I’m delighted to be joining the Moreton team. I’ve always been interested in agriculture and the countryside so naturally love Moreton Show, which is always innovating and developing. This year, we have a new membership drive with lots more on offer and I’m looking forward to promoting some of the new classes and attractions we have for 2017.’
