Our long association with rural real estate in Marlborough means that, once again, we’re proud sponsors of the Marlborough A & P Show. The show takes place on 9th and 10th November. The A & P Show is a long-standing tradition for the wider Marlborough community celebrating everything that is good about agriculture. It includes a showcase of the best livestock, horses and ponies, home cooking, preserves, craft, photography, sheep shearing, dog trials and wood chopping.
This year we’ll be horsing around at the Marlborough A & P Show, with Ace, the horse!
Who is Ace the horse?
We’re helping our friends at Bayleys Canterbury tell a Horsey Tail of Courage! The tale of Ace began when Bayleys Canterbury, decided they would like to do something to help people in the community.
Bayleys Canterbury sponsor the BNZ Crusaders and the much loved Crusaders Horses. With support from lots of their friends in the business community, they created a unique storybook. The Horsey Tail of Courage aims to change the conversation around bullying. At the same time, it encourages children to talk about bullying.
You can find out more about this fantastic initiative here.
If you would like to take home your own horse from the Marlborough A & P Show, come to visit the Bayleys Marlborough stand. We can’t promise you a real live pony… But, you might be lucky enough to secure a toy Ace. We’ll have a whole stable of happy horses which we’ll be giving away on the day! We always aim to be good neighhhh-bours to our friends in Canterbury. We felt this was a small way we could offer them our support. We’re pleased to be able to spread the word about Ace at this much-loved community event.
