THE Orsett Show has been a part of Essex life for more than 125 years and has grown more popular every year. The show offers spectacular arena entertainment, vintage steam engines, veteran cars plus a chance to get up close and personal with a whole variety of farm and domestic animals.
The organisers of the show are delighted to announce they have a new, main sponsor for the 2013 and 2014 show. The family firm West and Coe have committed to sponsor the Orsett Show for the next two years and are delighted to be associated with this great annual event.
West and Coe are a long established, family run funeral director with premises in Grays, Aveley, Pitsea and Dagenham. Jeremy West, Chairman and director, is the third generation of the family to run the company and along with local funeral director Brian Stock pride themselves on being a real part of the community.
“We are pleased to be associated with the Orsett Show” said Mr West, ”It has been such an important event in the life of the local community for as long as I can remember and I was delighted when the opportunity arose for West and Coe to become the main sponsor of the charity”
Mr West continued, “We take great pride in being part of our local community and have a firm affirmation to support local good causes. Sponsoring the Orsett Show is a perfect way for West and Coe to help preserve something which brings fun and enjoyment to a great many people in an area we care about. We have a long association of supporting other similar community events and are really looking forward to being there on the day’’
Show organiser Clive Folkard responded, “It’s a real pleasure to welcome West and Coe as the main show sponsors, Not many people realise the Show is a charity and does rely on the good will of sponsors to make the event possible. I was delighted when Jeremy West offered to step in and help particularly as they are a real local company and a big part of our local community.” Mr Folkard continued, “We look forward to a long and happy association with West and Coe.”
The Orsett Show will take place on Saturday 7th September this year and has all the regular attractions plus some spectacular main arena events to thrill and amaze! Not least will be the display by the amazing Bolddog motorcycle team who perform mind-blowing stunts 35 feet in the air!
