James Wardle, Show Chairman, said “Tyndale Agricultural Society is a charity, and the show is run almost entirely by volunteers. Kerry’s role is one of only three paid positions in the organisation, so it was incredibly important that we chose the right person who had the skills, background and personality for this diverse and challenging job.”
New Recruit at the ShowWednesday, 14 September 2016
This week the Northumberland County Show organisers welcomed Kerry Robson, of Little Black Hedley, near Shotley Bridge, as their new Show Secretary.
Mum of three, Kerry told us, “I come from a farming family so it was always a treat to come to the County Show as a little girl. I’ve been a regular visitor all my life and now bring my own daughters to the show. I’m proud to join the team that organise this fantastic event which has such a long heritage and reputation in the area.”
Kerry has worked in numerous organisations involved in agriculture, environment and rural affairs, including DEFRA and the Red Squirrel Trust. Kerry also worked alongside her brother Adam Forster at Camperdown Farm in Shotleyfield, before he sadly passed away two years ago. Kerry is no stranger to driving a quad bike around fields of cattle and sheep, and is passionate about all animals. The family have an array of dogs, chickens, ponies, Guinea pigs and other small pets that her three daughters Lauren (13), Ellie (11) and Gracie (9) love looking after.
