Statement from Mrs Mary Quicke MBE, Chairman of the Devon County Agricultural Association:
It is with a mixture of sadness and gratitude that the Devon County Agricultural Association announced today (Friday, January 26) Ollie Allen’s decision to retire as Secretary of the Devon County Show, effective on August 31, 2018.
Ollie joined the organisation in 1996 and has played a central role in its evolution and success ever since and, while we will miss her inspiring leadership, we wish to thank her for the last 21 years at the helm of the Devon County Show and wish her the best of luck in the future.
We wish to thank her for her dedication to the role which involved many significant innovations and accomplishments including:
Again, we thank Ollie for the dedication, passion and enthusiasm that she has given the Devon County Show over the past 21 years. But, before she leaves, we look forward to our 123rd Devon County Show and her 22nd Show on May 17, 18 and 19!
