Anglesey Show President 2023
Mr O Wyn Williams of Penrhyn Farm, Llanfwrog
It is an honour and a pleasure to be nominated as President of “Primin” / Anglesey Show for 2023! I have been a steward in the cattle shed for 41 years. First with my father when I was just 14 years old. I have learnt a lot over the years by stewarding alongside the chief steward, which was a great help on how to do the job properly for the exhibitors and the show.
I started showing beef cattle in 1986 as well as stewarding and depended on family and friends to do the actual showing. There have been a few successes over the years but, yet to win the main prize! The cattle shed is one of the best facilities on the show circuit throughout the UK, with great show rings, a place to wash the cattle and a place to shower for the exhibitors.
The show means a lot to me and my family and everyone looks forward to the Anglesey Show every year. I have been on the Show Council since 1996 and was Chairman in 2009. A lot has changed over the years, but the team that are on the Council are very special! The working together, pulling forward etc – it’s very exciting to be a part of it. Since 2019 I have been the Chairman of the Executive Committee and the work everyone has done, over the last three years, has protected the “Primin” for years to come!
I've learned over the years that the Anglesey Show means such a great deal to every steward and volunteer who helps in every section of the Show. Every section of the Show is as important as each other to create a great atmosphere, so that everyone who comes through the gates on the Tuesday morning and/or Wednesday, goes home having enjoyed it and wanting to come back the following year. It is not easy these days to find new attractions to interest the visitors.
To finish, Gwen and I would like to thank Anglesey Show for the honour of being 2023 Presidents. Plus, a huge thank you to John and Susan, Mona Tractors for their faultless work and dedication over the last three years!
Thank you to everyone who works so hard to host Anglesey Show!
See you at the 2023 Show!
Wyn and Gwen Williams
