Stokesley Show 2017

Farmers and families alike turned out for the largest one-day agricultural show the North has to offer.

The Stokesley Show, celebrating its 145th year, had all the traditional farming favourites while adrenalin junkie Jason Smyth impressed in the main ring with his quad stunts.

Founded in 1859, the show has evolved into one of the highlights of the social calendar for farmers in North Yorkshire and further afield.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hello at the Derek Slack Motors stand on Saturday. A dull start turned into a glorious sun-filled day and It was nice to see so many of our customers enjoying the sunshine.

From quad stunts to vintage tractors, crafts and poultry to livestock and horses, the show had something for everyone.

Wales PICK-UP Historic Isuzu Deal

Isuzu and the Welsh Rugby Union have signed a shirt partnership deal which means Warren Gatland’s Wales will wear Isuzu’s logo on their jersey for the next four years.

Isuzu will take pride of place on the chests of Wales’ international stars for the first time this Autumn, as Gatland’s side faces Australia, Georgia, New Zealand and South Africa in the Under Armour Series at Principality Stadium.

In addition; the multi-million-pound partnership sees Isuzu extend their support to the senior Wales women’s side, which will also carry the logos on their playing kit until 2021, and the supply of Isuzu D-Max vehicles to the WRU’s community department which reaches out across Wales.

“We are delighted to welcome a company of the size, stature and international renown of Isuzu,” said WRU chief executive Martyn Phillips.

“Their investment in both the Women’s and Men’s national side and the community game will be instrumental to the growth and sustainable future of the game in Wales.

“In terms of the Isuzu partnership alone, this is the biggest national jersey partnership in the history of our national game.
The partnership also gives Isuzu a raft of marketing and media rights which will increase brand awareness and connection to rugby supporters.

“This partnership is the first of its kind for us and it has long been our objective to make the Isuzu brand better known,” said Isuzu Managing Director, Paul Tunnicliffe.

“This sponsorship will achieve that, by taking the brand to a huge audience, including millions of television viewers. 
“Rugby is an intrinsic part of Welsh life, and we are delighted to become associated with an institution which shares our values of dependability, toughness and commitment.”
