Wilmslow Community Show receiving grant cheque from Town Mayor

Wilmslow Town Council will sponsor this year’s Wilmslow Community Show, with a Community Grant of £10,000.

The Wilmslow Community Show takes place on Sunday 7th July 2024 from 11am – 4pm at Wilmslow Carnival Field. Organised by volunteers, the Show is one of the largest community events in Wilmslow and aims to offer entertainment and interest for visitors of all ages.

The grant from Wilmslow Town Council will fund free donkey rides, some children’s activities and free stalls for community groups / charities so that they can showcase or raise money for their group.

The funding will also be used towards covering security costs and traffic management for the event.

This year’s show will include a funfair, a variety of animals to view and a 4-legged Arena including a dog show.  Organisers are also welcoming the return of the Car Show, Cookery marquee and ‘Art Under Canvas’ marquee. This year, a ‘Victorian Wonders’ Show has been added, with several performances through the day and a workshop to join in. There will be a range of artisan food options, in addition to a dedicated picnic area for those who want to bring their own food.

Town Mayor, Jon Newell, said of the grant, “Wilmslow Town Council is delighted to sponsor the Wilmslow Community Show once again.

“The Show is an annual event enjoyed by all generations of the local community. We are pleased to support its continued success by enabling some free, fun activities, as well as helping Wilmslow community groups and charities raise money or promote their cause to many people.”
