Pavilion Will ‘Steal The Show’ Says Islands Partnership

islands partnership logoThe Islands’ Partnership has announced details of Scilly’s Pavilion at next month’s Royal Cornwall Show in Wadebridge.

The 60 foot by 40 foot wooden building will be brightly decorated on the outside and house a range of exhibits covering farming, food, the AONB, Tresco Estate and the Steamship Company.

Islands Partnership manager, Amanda Pender, says it promises to be a ‘blue and vibrant oasis in the middle of a show which tends to be somewhat green and brown’ and it’s been designed to stand out from the crowd.

It’s the first time the various islands’ tourism organisations have exhibited at the show under a single roof.

Amanda says the aim is to showcase Scilly by literally recreating the island experience in miniature and thinks the pavilion will ‘steal the show.’

Dave Meneer, who is co-ordinating the pavilion, says it’s an upbeat promotion that will remind people that even though the helicopter service has been withdrawn, getting to the islands is still easy.

And being at the show is an ideal way of telling the people of Cornwall that the Isles of Scilly are right on their doorstep, he says.

A different competition each day will offer the prize of a holiday on the islands.

130,000 visitors are expected to attend the show, which runs from 6th-8th June.

Amanda Pender says the Partnership is holding the last of a series of roadshows on St Mary’s on the 15th May

It’s an opportunity for the residents of St Mary’s to learn more about the aims of the Partnership, what they’ve been doing and what’s planned for the rest of 2013. There will also be a question and answer session following the presentation.

It starts at 5.30pm in the Church Hall.
