Suffolk Show 2013 goes in for the skill
THE Suffolk Skills space, supported by new sponsors Baker Tilly, has increased to include the recently merged Easton and Otley College at this year’s Suffolk Show, says show director DAVID NUNN
The display focuses on land based skills and the challenge to attract 300 more recruits into the industry in the next three years. Alongside them students from the county’s colleges will compete in competitions and demonstrations in bricklaying, woodworking and carpentry, electrical engineering and catering and allied trades.
New is the Newmarket Experience, a pop up travelling paddock comprising every element of the racing world – race horse simulators, an interactive display from the National Horseracing Museum, chance to try on racing silks and much more.
In the agricultural machinery avenues, the UK agents for the market-leading Vervaet sugar beet harvesters, J Rileys will make a welcome return to the Show displaying a refurbished 1999 Vervaet 17-tonne six-row harvester.
New are Grimme UK and Nutri bio, the recycling side of Anglian Water. Nutri-bio is the final product of wastewater treatment, known as Biosolids, and about 350,000 tonnes of treated product are annually applied to land in the Anglian Water region.
