The Ag Show Ltd. (the committee) is pleased to announce the completion of renovations to the Exhibition Office on the grounds of Botanical Gardens.
Weeks after the first-ever 2021 Virtual Ag Show, work began on renovations to the Exhibition Office. In partnership with Paulo Construction, consultation with Steve Conway (Chief Surveyor approved by Col. Burch), and oversight of the project by Glen Brangman, the renovations included a complete overhaul to the structure. Renovations comprised of newly plastered walls, electrical system, ceilings, counters, air conditioning, and flooring. The committee was able to facilitate this project with funds saved through the years from entrance fees to the Exhibition.
Antwan Albuoy, Exhibition Director, stated: “We discussed upgrades to the building in late 2020, but decided to begin the work after the Ag Show. We are committed to the delivery of a great Exhibition every year, but we are also invested in the contributions we make to Bermuda outside of the Exhibition.”
Ag Show Ltd is not only committed to future Ag Shows but also to assist (where it can) with the restoration of other buildings. Our goal is to assist other stakeholders with interest in the buildings on the grounds during the Agriculture Exhibition. Future fundraising efforts by Ag Show Ltd will now include raising funds for restorations and maintenance of the buildings in the Botanical Gardens.
Kirk Kitson, Fundraising Chair, added: “While we see the need and have the vision to assist, it is important to note, the true beneficiaries of this vision are the residents and visitors to Bermuda. We cannot do it alone, but we believe and are thankful to our community partners.”
Ag Show Ltd would like to thank the Ministry of Parks and in particular, Col David Burch who has supported our efforts to run Ag Shows over the years and the efforts made to the improvements to Botanical Gardens. Lastly, the committee is constantly reviewing the impact of Covid-19, there will be NO AG SHOW EXHIBITION in 2022. We will keep the community posted on any further developments.
