20130616_145617With just a few days left to go until the 129th Lincolnshire Show begins, all of the stewards gathered today to discuss and finalise the arrangements for the busy week ahead.

There are a number of different stewarding teams with expertise in their own areas, including:

  • Livestock
  • Countryside
  • Horse
  • Traffic
  • Trade
  • Catering, Hospitality and Public Services
  • Health & Safety

Arriving at 2pm, there was time for a quick catch-up with other stewards before being briefed on the week ahead. There was then a 5-10 minute fire safety briefing by the Chief Health & Safety Steward talking about the various types of fire extinguisher and their respective uses.

Afterwards, a buffet of sandwiches, cakes and drinks was provided for stewards.
