Successful team. At the ripe old age of eight, Heidi McMahon came a very credible 2nd place in the novice parader section of the Neville cattle show. Heidi's partner, Tennyson Park Ashley won Junior Champion for female British Breed to boot. Photo: Wayne Cock.

Neville Show was a huge success with gate entry doubling from previous years.

The Show Society would like to thank the community who supported the show and the many volunteers who helped both before and during the show.

The endeavour of the Society is to raise funds for the ongoing maintenance and restoration of the Neville showground.

This year the grounds looked superb and appear to have come back to life after many years of not being "loved".

We have received very positive feedback and congratulations and will strive to continue to improve our show each year.

This year we added several new events such as the Home Brew competition and the Ute round-up which were well patronised but the Find the Bear competition for the "littlies" generated excitement and squeals of delight from children looking for the bears hiding in and around the showground.

The dress-up theme of colonial days was well patronised and the book launch on the biography of bushranger John Vane very successful.

We should like to thank the Lachlan Living History Group for their re-enactment of a Mail Coach hold up and Andrew Baulch for doing a superb job as spruiker.

"It's all about community" said Neville Show Society president, Raelene Wong.
