A&P rewards 50 years’ service

Fifty years of service by Walter Scott of Morrinsville to the Royal Agricultural Society has been publicly recognised.

He was presented by Morrinsville A&P Society president Bruce McRobbie with a plaque, a bottle of whiskey and a bouquet of flowers for Walter’s wife Tui.

Scott is a former president of the Morrinsville A&P Society and the Mid-Northern council of the RAS, then vice-president and president of the national body.

His association with the Morrinsville show goes back 76 years when, aged 16, his father as society secretary suggested he help get the grounds ready for the first post-war event.

He has been a steward in at least one section in every show since.
