For the second consecutive year Jupiter will run a contest for schools to win a month’s free supply of fruit and £100 sports equipment at this year’s Newport Show

It’s just two weeks until the 110th Newport Show just a stone’s throw from our UK Headquarters. Once again we are proud to be a sponsor of this annual highlight in the region’s calendar.

This family friendly one-day event, which will run on Saturday July 13, showcases the “best of the region’s food, entertainment and agricultural excellence.”

As a local fresh produce grower and distributor one of our highlights is the Festival of Food upon the countryside terrace as you enter the Newport Showground, home to trade stalls full of local delicacies, demonstrations and an impressive street food vendor line up to keep hunger at bay on the day.

To encourage children to understand the field to fork process and get hands on with food, there is also a Little Foodies section where children age 5-11 get the chance to enjoy a 30 minute masterclass in cooking.

The volunteer led team will be making pasta at 10.30am and rolling sushi at 12 noon. Each child will receive a goody bag at the end of the session courtesy of us here at the Jupiter Group too.

How are your apple-bobbing skills?

We’re giving – so make sure you come and find us!

Last year the children of Newport Junior school won the competition and they enjoyed four weeks of fresh deliveries and chose bags of dodgeballs to top up their school sports equipment.

The schedule for this year’s event, which is not only described as “Shropshire’s best one-day show” but also attracts families from across Shropshire, and further afield, is certainly set to be yet another packed and exciting one.

You can find more out about the Newport Show schedule here and on its Facebook page here or follow update on Twitter @NewportShow.
