He took over the reins from Michael Eavis CBE at the Society’s Council meeting at the Bath & West Showground on Thursday 21 July 2016
Handing over his presidential badge of office, Mr Eavis commented: “It has been a great privilege to be part of the team for a year. I thoroughly enjoyed the Dairy Show in 2015 as I am a very proud Dairy Farmer myself and it was a great Show.
This year’s Royal Bath & West Show was an excellent display of Great British Agriculture and Entertainment. There were many highlights of the Show for me including the New Music area, the array of Livestock and of course being made a pair of tweed shorts”
I have thoroughly enjoyed being President and wish Sir John Cave a fantastic year”
Sir John said “I am very much looking forward to the next year as President of The Royal Bath & West Society, Agricultural Societies play a major role in the Agricultural Industry and I look forward to attending the many Shows the Society showcases”
