The Point Show committee has confirmed that here will be a Point Show Family Fun Day this year on Saturday 11th July at Aird School Showground.
The buildings at Aird School were substantially damaged during the storm in early January. The Council and Urras Storas an Rubha are waiting on estimates and a survey to decide whether to repair or demolish the school. Whatever the outcome the school buildings will certainly not be available to the show this year.
As a consequence the Point Show Committee has regretfully decided not to have an agricultural show this year. There will however be a family fun day, with the usual attractions and mixture of charity and commercial stalls.
The Horse show and Dog show will go ahead as part of the fun day as they are self-governing.
The show committee is dedicated to continue with an Agricultural Show and is planning for a full show in 2016 regardless of school access.
