Association records sound financial position

Association records sound financial position

The Canterbury Agricultural and Pastoral Association have released their Annual Report announcing results for the financial year ending 31 December 2013. Despite an at times unruly northeast wind, the 2013 Canterbury A&P Show welcomed over 95,000 visitors over the three days, down only marginally on the 150th anniversary event in 2012.

The 151st Canterbury A&P Show, hosted by the Canterbury A&P Association, attracted 570 trade exhibitors, 6407 livestock and feature competition entries and 95,692 visitors over the three days in November.

The Canterbury A&P Association’s 2013 financial performance was credible, resulting in a surplus after depreciation of $85,033, up from $77,156 for the year ending 2012. “The Association’s financial position is sound, the result of discipline and a decade of steady, conservative and prudent debit reduction and growth” commented Canterbury A&P Association Board Chair Ben Tothill.

The Annual General Meeting of the Canterbury A&P Association will be held Wednesday 19 March 2014, commencing at 3pm at Langdale Vineyard Restaurant, West Melton. All members of the Association are invited to attend.

The 2014 Canterbury A&P Show will be held Wednesday 12 to Friday 14 November at Canterbury Agricultural Park in Christchurch.

The Canterbury A&P Association Annual Report is available on request.
