Virtual Cheshire Show 2020

It’s that time of year again but as you know, like all large events, it has to be cancelled this year. Usually Cheshire Scouting would have 200+ volunteersat the show providing a welcome face to visitors as they arrive at the entrance gates. However not all is lost as the Royal Cheshire Agricultural Show has arranged a “Virtual Cheshire Show” that goes live on the 16 June and Cheshire Scouts will be taking part. You watch our contribution here
