All Scotland - Funding
Point Agricultural Society is pleased to receive a grant award from the
Big Lottery Fund - Awards for All Scotland for £10,000. The awards for
all funding will enable the committee to purchase two new tents and a
PA system for the Point Show.
The three current marquees have served the show for over ten years but
are now near the end of their useful life. In 2004 a lottery
grant of £3000 went towards purchasing these marquees.
With the school hall now out of commission the committee looked to
secure funding to get a large marquee to house all the indoor sections
that were situated in the hall. The new marquees secured with
the Awards For All Funding will ensure
the Show continues to flourish; with over 1500 visitors the Point Show
is the largest community event in Point. This year’s show on
Saturday 16th July promises to be the biggest ever.
