THE 109-year-old Devonport
Show has been shelved.
The Devonport Agricul-
tural and Pastoral Society had
hoped to run a new event,
FarmFest, to replace the show
this year but a lack of volun-
teers and occupational health
and safety concerns thwarted
DAPS president MaryAnn
Hortle said $40,000 promised
by the State Government did
not arrive in time to fix the
venue's internal road before
FarmFest was to be held on
A Government spokesman
said the show day holiday
would remain in place.
No show at Devonport
