Membership of the South of England Agricultural Society has been a gift that keeps on giving. We not only have free entry into the Spring and Autumn Shows and especially love the South of England Show - the finest countryside and farming showpiece in the south - but also know that our small contribution helps nurture and educate those that will be charged with looking after the countryside in the future and that our farming will be in safe hands. This is all thanks to the charitable work of the Society Richard Copeland & Kay Smith, Joint Members since 2007
