Preparations for the return of the Moreton-in-Marsh agricultural show in September received a major boost when property consultancy Butler Sherborn confirmed that it will continue to be a major sponsor for the next three years.
Moreton Show, which was cancelled last year like all other such shows because of the COVID crisis, returns on Saturday, September 4th with the unanimous backing of the council of the Moreton-in-Marsh and District Agricultural and Horse Show Society, the charity established to promote the improvement in the breeding and rearing of livestock, hunters and heavy horses and improving the standards of farming and farm craft in the local area.
