New shearing shed is set to stun at show

Shearing shed set to stun

The shearing competition is set to be the drawcard for this year's Cleve Show according to committee president, Janet King.

"We will be having our open, intermediate and novice competitions all in our newly revamped shearing shed," she said.

"The Men's Shed worked with three other volunteers as well as Lyndon Crosby to set it up just in time for this year's show on Saturday, October 5."

"It's magnificent, it's like a brand new shed. I've never seen a shed as good."

"The shearing convenor says it's beautiful and wishes every shed he worked in was as nice as that."

"One of the shearers has given it his seal of approval."

Hundreds of volunteer hours, a $7000 federal government drought relief grant and community donations of timber and recycled pallets made this upgrade possible.

The show will also feature the usual horses in action program on the oval, the grain competition and a wool competition where all of the fleeces will be donated to help raise funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

"We know that a lot of farmers are badly in need of rain this year but we are still hoping farmers will be able to enter some classes in the grain section," Janet said.

"The show provides an opportunity for farmers to promote the importance of agriculture in the district."

"There is also an opportunity for the next generation of farmers to enter in the junior section."

Entertainment will include live music with singers from the school performing for the crowd and much more.

"A big vintage machinery display is coming from Port Lincoln," Janet said.

"That will bring back quite a few memories to a lot of people."

"There will be a bar, several food sites and we have showbags available to purchase."

"We have a free mystery bag for small children up to six years of age that has things like pencils and toys in it."

"We've also got two blow-up castles, a maze, smiley clowns and a couple of other games."

"One of the things we have added this year is the children's scarecrow competition."

"That should be a drawcard for the kids because it's school holidays and they will have time to get it ready."

"There are many different sites coming, we have olives, jam, jewellery and more coming along."

"At this stage the centre is full and it looks like I'm going to end up filling the Pioneer Hall as well."

"With nice weather, we should have a pleasant day out."

"All we need now is a few people to volunteer."
