366 days of gratitude

The Upper Clutha A&P Show must have one of the best sites in the country.

It’s just a few blocks from the centre of Wanaka and over the road from the lake.

When we first went only the horses were camped on the neighbouring park.

Gradually pressure from trade exhibitors led to the show expanding across the street the show grounds.

It’s the South Island’s second biggest show. This year it attracted more than 40,000 people with 472 stalls and it covered almost half the park.

The A&P Association has, I think, only two paid staff. The rest of the work is done by volunteers.

Today I’m grateful for the show and the people whose work make it possible.
