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

The countdown is underway for the Newport Show 2018 and Jupiter Group is once again proud to be a sponsor of this annual highlight in the region’s calendar.

This family friendly one-day event, which will run this Saturday July 14, will showcase 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, which this year will feature a Great British Bake Off runner up, Steven Carter-Bailey, and the BBC barbecue queens Samantha Evans and Shauna Guinn, who star in Sam & Shauna’s Big Cookout series.

How are your apple-bobbing skills?

And, we’re giving youngsters the chance to win £100 of sports equipment for their school as well as a month’s free supply of fruit if they prove to have the best apple-bobbers in our fruity contest – so make sure you come and find us!

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.

High-octane displays set to be a schedule highlight

There will also be “thrilling, high-octane” displays, competitive classes, vintage tractor display, an expanded education hub and a new countryside retail village.

As Newport’s second largest, independent employer, we’re delighted to be able to support such a great community event, alongside other passionate local companies.

A show spokesman said: “Newport Show is fortunate to have the backing of an amazing group of supporting businesses and organisations who make this large annual undertaking possible.”

Will you be joining us?

So, will you be going? Will your children be trying their skills at apple-bobbing with us?  We certainly hope so.

And, if you do decide to join us on the day, why not send us a picture of you having fun, and let us know on our social media channels what you’re enjoying most about this year’s line-up?
