Easton College’s Agriculture students, in partnership the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association and The Veteran Horse Society, have held a Virtual Agricultural Show.
The Show was open to students and the general public, with classes for equine, livestock, machinery, and fun categories.
This student-led event, organised by for Agriculture students from the college, aimed to help them gain experience, supplement their learning, and develop new skills.
Students’ positive response to county show cancellation
Jade Lanham, agriculture skills tutor at Eason College, said:
"Obviously there’s no Royal Norfolk Show this year, which is disappointing because everybody loves and meets up at a county show.
"So we decided it would be nice to bring everyone together and support the college by creating a virtual show, led by the Level 3 students. It is such a hard time at the moment, with lots of young children really disappointed that there are no shows so we have included young handler and novelty classes so there is something for everyone.”
RNAA chief executive Greg Smith said:
“We are delighted to be able to support this virtual event created by the Easton College students.
"This is an excellent initiative which we are all looking forward to immensely and felt it only right to contribute the rosettes to recognise the efforts of the exhibitors and the students alike.”
