It’s the youngest show on the calendar, but what the Neville show may lack in its own history, it really is making up for it with not only a tremendous range of activities this Saturday, but a tilt of the hat to the sacrifices made by others in the past.

Chop chop: Shane Ryan will be organising the chainsaw competitions at the Neville Show.
