Organisers of the 54th Denbigh Agricultural and Industrial Show are putting the final touches on the May Pen showground, to ensure that it is ready to accommodate the hundreds of thousands of patrons expected for the three-day event.
Kingsley Clarke, Denbigh Showground Manager for the Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS), told JIS News on Friday (July 28), that the ground preparations were about 80 per cent completed.
He noted that ground cleaning was far advanced and would be completed today, and all booths and tents would be in place for vendors to start occupying them on Friday (August 4).
Mr. Clarke informed that the JAS had undertaken to upgrade its sewage system, and the work was 90 per cent completed. In addition, he said, the cleaning of drains would be finished this week.
He noted too, that minor works were being done on the roadways on the showground, which will be completed on Thursday (Aug. 3), while repairs to the buildings, grandstand, the general pavilion and the livestock area started today and would be completed by Thursday.
“We’re ready for Denbigh 2006 and we expect a good turnout,” Mr. Clarke told JIS News. “The farmers are excited and the ‘kiddies’ village has been expanded among other attractions. We’re expecting that this is going to be one of the best Denbigh Agricultural Shows ever,” he declared.
A project of the JAS, the three-day Denbigh Agricultural and Industrial Show will be held from Saturday, August 5 to Monday, August 7 under the theme ‘Advancing Rural Development through Agriculture’.
