The Royal Cheshire County Show is fully committed to managing its impact on the natural environment whenever and wherever practicably possible.
We are fully aware that The Royal Cheshire County, as a very popular event, generates vast amounts of litter waste. However, we are proud to work with the Nick Brookes Group, which handle our various waste streams, to ensure we have a zero amount of waste going to landfill each year.
This is achieved by choosing not to attempt to segregate waste at source (at the show), which can prove problematic, but with all waste collected on site being taken to a local recycling centre and sorted into recyclable and non-recyclable waste streams. We are currently working on an 80% recycled percentage, with the remaining 20% being used as Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) to generate energy.
We also encourage all suppliers to The Royal Cheshire County Show to reduce their impact on the natural environment in anyway practicably possible.
It is recommended that anyone coming into direct contact with animals should wash immediately afterwards and in particular before eating. Hand sanitising points will be available around the Showground.
Information can be obtained from the Show Office in the Members Area and various information points throughout the showground.
Facilities for changing and feeding babies are kindly provided by the Mother’s Union. Their marquee is situated close to the entrance to the Members Enclosure at the rear of the pond.
Please be aware that photographs and film will be taken throughout the showground for broadcast, publicity and marketing purposes. The Society will only use such material to promote and publicise The Royal Cheshire County Show, and will not pass on or sell to third parties. Where possible, in the event of photography of a child, parent/guardian permission will be requested. For any specific questions relating to our photography policy please contact us by email.
Bella Design and Marketing is the Show’s PR and Marketing partner for the 2021 event and will be operating a dedicated press area during the show, arranging interviews, providing press packs and information to media representatives.
