Henry said: “It is a great honour to be this year’s President of the Cheshire Agricultural Society, an organisation that has never had a greater responsibility to safeguard the future, not only of the exceptional Royal Cheshire County Show, but also the future of the rural economy and community. Cheshire is an amazing place for so many reasons, all of which have our people at their heart, and it is wonderful to see the huge variety of support the show enjoys at this important juncture.”
