We are delighted to present the 2020 and 2021 recipients of The Capesthorne Millennium Cup! The award celebrations were unfortunately delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, yet we are delighted to have now awarded Richard Hague FRICS as the 2020 recipient, and Rev’d Jane Parry as the 2021 recipient.
Below they are pictured with Sir William Bromley-Davenport KVCO, the Cheshire Agricultural Society Patron and the Presenter of the cup, which is named after their family home, Capesthorne.
The Capesthorne Millennium Cup (CMC) was kindly donated by Sir William and Lady Bromley Davenport of Capesthorne Hall, to the Cheshire Agricultural Society and was awarded for the first time at the Society’s AGM in the Year 2000. It is now awarded annually “for exceptional endeavour in promoting the interests of agriculture or countryside related activities in Cheshire”. The award is administered through a small Committee set up by the Cheshire Agricultural Society. This Committee contains a member of the Bromley Davenport family.
The trophy is in the form of an antique silver tankard with lid and finished with a swan finial.
