This year the Show was attended by HRH The Princess Anne who was welcomed to the Show by this year’s President, Lord Forsyth.
Frazer Coogans became the first sponsors of the new Livestock Ring Hospitality Marquee situated between the two Cattle Competition Rings.
Senior director Norman Geddes said, “We were very pleased to have this opportunity to support the Royal Highland Show and delighted by the interest shown in the new facility which we sponsored. It was visited by many Sponsors, Directors, Judges and Officials. We also enjoyed visits by many of our own clients, from as far afield as Moray, Perthshire, Dumfries, Galloway, and of course our many friends from Ayrshire. The location of the venue was first class with a marvellous outlook to the Cattle Judging and we enjoyed a very busy time.”
The Royal Highland Show is Scotland’s largest outdoor event, contributing £47.1m to the Scottish economy in 2014. The 2015 show attracted a record crowd of 188,419 over the four days of the Show.
As well as Norman Geddes, in attendance from Frazer Coogans were Director Peter McNamara and Solicitor Craig Currie from the firm’s busy Agricultural and Commercial Law team, supported by Clare Geddes.
Peter McNamara said “We were particularly proud to be the first sponsors of this marvellous new facility and delighted to meet so many friends, old and new. We look forward to supporting this venue again next year.”
