We are delighted to have White & Guard as one of our main sponsors. Sponsoring the Entertainment Arena means that we can provide a variety of acts and displays to keep our visitors entertained throughout the day.
White & Guard are local estate agents who have just been awarded the highest accolade in their industry – being recognised as the best Estate Agent in the UK. WG Partner Steve White said: “Since 2006 we have strived to receive such an honour and recognition from both our peers in the industry and more importantly the public we represent and to be awarded the Best Agent in the UK, while a bit surreal, is a truly outstanding achievement for all our staff, who should be very proud indeed.”
The White House, Curdridge have been long-standing sponsors and supporters of the Show. Their sponsorship helps to cover the cost of the marquee containing the Horticultural Show and a select number of exibitors.
The White House provides a homely, safe and caring environment for residents, caring for younger and older people living with dementia. Purchased by Julie Harrison in 1983 as a private house and adapted to meet the varying abilities and needs of the residents who live there.
Silverlake Automotive Recycling have also been longstanding sponsors of the Show and, this year, their support has contributed towards the showground attractions that we have for you to enjoy.
Established in 1946 the company has expanded significantly in recent years with the introduction of a Silverlake retail unit in Southampton, continuous investment at the main 10 acre site in Shedfield, Hampshire, the launch of Silverlake.co.uk online store, self-service autoparts facility – U-Pick-It and a scheme to support charitable causes – U-Donate-A-Car.
The Silverlake group of companies offer a wide range of services, from vehicle recovery, daily breakers and auctions, salvage and recycled car parts through to full environmentally friendly recycling of End of Life Vehicles (ELV) at our Authorised Treatment Facility in Hampshire.
Silverlake help drive down the cost of motoring, with each car on average sold 5 times during its life – each owner using more recycled parts, which from Silverlake can cost up to 80% less than OEM parts.
Silverlake are helping you to help the environment as well as supporting charities of your choice.
