Capel Manor College Triumphs at Hertfordshire County Show

On Saturday 24 May to Sunday 25 May, Capel Manor College proudly exhibited at the Hertfordshire County Show, where students and staff alike, enjoyed fantastic weather and great success.

The College showcased its varied course offering with an eye-catching stand, that featured impressive displays and activities from all subject areas (including agriculture, animal management, and floristry and event styling). A special highlight was showcasing some of the College’s cattle, which earned multiple awards:

  • Four Firsts and Champion Redpoll – Breed Champion and Reserve
  • Most Winning Points Score by Cattle Exhibitor
  • Most Points Score by any Exhibitor

The cattle reside at Capel Manor College’s Forty Hall Farm in Enfield, a certified organic farm that spans 150 acres, and includes a community market garden and orchard, a local veg bag scheme, a Farm Shop and London’s only organic commercial vineyard. The Farm also serves as an educational resource for Capel Manor College’s students.The Hertfordshire County Show raises funds for the Hertfordshire Agricultural Society, promoting local farming, agriculture, and related skills, crafts, trades, and professions. The event is one of the county’s flagship events and is a celebration of country life, food, and farming, attracting over 35,000 visitors.

Elaine Watson, Curriculum Leader in Animal Management and Saddlery at Capel Manor College said:

“We had a great weekend at Hertfordshire County Show showcasing Capel Manor College and the courses we offer, providing us with a great opportunity to meet people from the industry and welcome potential new students to our stand. Next year we are aiming to have increased student engagement by bringing along more sheep and cattle to the show.”
