Jackson's Event Round Up

It’s been a busy start to the Spring / Summer programme and the sales and marketing team has been working flat out to keep the Jacksons flag flying at a number of high profile events over the last couple of months.

Agricultural Events

First up was the Agri-Expo at the Kent County Showground which took place at the beginning of March. Organised by our good friends R.A.M.S.A.K (Ring of Agricultural Machinery for Sussex & Kent) and the K.C.A.S. (Kent County Agricultural Society) this provided a perfect opportunity to remind visitors to the show of Jacksons’ heritage and expertise within the agricultural community.

Equestrian Events

Chilham Castle Horse Trials near Canterbury followed, running Saturday 26th and Sunday 28th April and attracting over 600 competitors. Set in the 350 acre of historic parkland in the heart of Kent the event proved a success despite the patchy weather. Jacksons Equestrian sponsored a jump on the course and also showcased the quality stables / field shelters which now feature within the Jacksons portfolio.

Sticking with the equestrian theme, 14-18th May saw Jacksons Equestrian make its first ‘royal’ engagement, exhibiting at the Royal Windsor Horse Show which took place in the stunning grounds of Windsor Castle. The show provided the ideal launch platform for the Jacksons Equestrian Club, which provides members with exclusive access to ‘how-to’ training videos from the Jacksons Professional Rider Team. Joining us at the event was international dressage rider Hannah Biggs and Paralympic dressage rider Natasha Baker OBE also stopped by …

The Jacksons team then travelled hot foot from Windsor to keep its annual appointment at the Heathfield & District Agricultural Show in Sussex, which took place on the 24th May.

Next up was a show of support for our Chester and Bath fencing centres that saw Jacksons exhibit at the Staffordshire County Show (28/29th May) and the Royal Bath & West Show (28th -31st May).

Show Gardens Open Day

Finally, the 31st May marked the fifth consecutive official Show Gardens Open Day at Jackson's Stowting headquarters. Visitors flocked to our very own mini Chelsea Flower Show to admire the seven beautiful show gardens which represent the work of garden designers from all over the country. To add to the day’s celebrations, the event also featured a ‘best of Kent’ farmers market.
