Awards for All Scotland - Funding

Point Agricultural Society is pleased to receive a grant award from the Big Lottery Fund - Awards for All Scotland for £10,000. The awards for all funding will enable the committee to purchase two new tents and a PA system for the Point Show.

The three current marquees have served the show for over ten years but are now near the end of their useful life.  In 2004 a lottery grant of £3000 went towards purchasing these marquees.

2004 marquees

The marquees bought with the 2004 grant

With the school hall now out of commission the committee looked to secure funding to get a large marquee to house all the indoor sections that were situated in the hall.  The new marquees secured with the Awards For All Funding will ensure the Show continues to flourish; with over 1500 visitors the Point Show is the largest community event in Point.  This year’s show on Saturday 16th July promises to be the biggest ever.
