Our Members

President for 2020 – Steve Perryman

With a family farming background, Steve’s career has always been associated with farming and agriculture. From school, Steve completed an apprenticeship with a local machinery dealer then spent a number of years working on a dairy farm in the Middle East. On returning to the UK, Steve took a machinery sales position with Hamblys Ltd, a South West family run farm machinery business, progressing to sales manager then sales director for the company in 2009.

Hamblys take great pleasure in supporting local farming events, charities and the YFC, but in particular The Truro Primestock Show. 

Steve says: “With the show’s unique location in Truro City centre, it’s a pleasure to be part of this popular and well organised event.”  

Being brought up on The Roseland, Steve has always loved the country side and coastal views, and in his opinion there is nothing better than on a sunny day exploring our Cornish coastal paths.  One day he hopes to make it all the way around!

President elect – Mrs Armorel Carlyon

The 2021 Show will be held on 1st December. However, due to the ongoing situation things will still be different to usual. The City Council are unable to have the usual marquee on Lemon Quay, and it is not economic or practical for us to hire our own just for a few days. However, we will be able to have a small domestic display and show of farm crops. Unfortunately, there will not be a domestic section this year. It is hoped that the judging and sale of livestock will be held at Truro Livestock Market. There will also be a carcass class judged at RJ Trevarthen. Further details, schedules and entry forms for the commercial crops, livestock and carcasses will be published on the website in mid September. ... See MoreSee Less
