Show-goers praised for behaviour

WARWICK Show chairman John Wilson has thrown out a huge thanks to the general public for making this year’s show such a good one.

While the crowds may not have been huge during the weekend, Mr Wilson said this was partly due to a few timing issues with Easter and the school holidays.

However, he said this should improve next year.

“The show can be forgotten a little bit as far as your planning and that sort of stuff goes,” he said.

“Next year we’ll be getting back into a normal time frame and I think we’ll see an improvement.”

Mr Wilson said without the support of the hard-working volunteers and sponsors, the show just would not happen.

“Our volunteers are just tireless ... somebody asked me the other day when do you start preparing for the show, well we’ve already started preparing for the next one,” he said.

“It has been absolutely brilliant, the weather has been glorious and we’ve kicked all the goals as far as I’m concerned.”

Warwick Police officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Stewart Day said the crowd was extremely well behaved at the weekend.

Snr Sgt Day said he had a force of more than 20 officers patrolling the show at the weekend, however said thankfully there had been little trouble.

Snr Sgt Day said many parents participated in the Tag a Toddler program.
