Countryside Day this year was held on Wednesday 10th July at the North Somerset Showground.
In 2011, for the first time, the North Somerset Agricultural Society organised a free educational event for local school children. The event aimed to educate children on the production and origin of food and different aspects of countryside management and was a huge success. Unfortunately, last year we were beaten by the wet weather and had to cancel the event but we are hoping that 2013 will prove as succcessful as 2011
The Society believes that educating future generations about the importance of agriculture is crucial in the face of ever worsening food security and the threats to food supplies from climate change and an ever increasing population.
