FROM CLARE BRADLEY, PEACOCK & BINNINGTON
The Lincolnshire Show proved a great success to Lincolnshire & Yorkshire based Agricultural Machinery dealer Peacock & Binnington who scooped 3 prestigious awards.
The first of which, The Leverton Cup for the Best Agricultural Stand, the second award – The Gordon Spratt Memorial Trophy for the Stand with the most welcoming experience and best hospitality and lastly The Hugh Bourn President’s Trophy for the Best Stand in the Whole Show.
Managing Director Graham Main commented “I am proud we have been recognised with the three awards. The trophies are a great award for the effort put in by the girls and guys welcoming visitors to our stand and for making the stand the best in show, an award never achieved by the company before! Well done to all involved!”
The company were especially pleased to welcome DEFRA Minister of State – George Eustice MP onto the stand, where he met with Chairman – Mr Michael Peacock. He stayed on the stand for a while and spoke to Michael about Brexit and the future of UK farming outside the EU
Despite the heat, the stand attracted crowds of visitors that not only came to view the range of machinery on the stand, but also the stunt trials bike show performed by 16 Year old Will Ackerley.
Will, the son of one of the companies farming customers from Pocklington in York has been riding pedal trials bikes for the past 6 years and over that time has become one of the best young juniors in not only Great Britain but also Europe and last year was invited by British Cycling to ride for GB in the world Championships. His true passion is competitive trials but he has also started doing shows both on his own and as part of a team where he has entertained crowds across the country.
As one of his main sponsors, Peacock & Binnington booked him to perform on their stand at the Lincolnshire Show and once again at the Driffield Show.
