Stephen Metcalfe MP meets residents at the Orsett Show

Stephen Metcalfe MP at the Orsett Show
Last Saturday, Stephen Metcalfe, Member of Parliament for South Basildon and East Thurrock, spent a busy day meeting and chatting with residents as he manned a stall at the Orsett show.

Stephen and his team handed out hundreds of leaflets, spoke to numerous passers-by and even provided free balloons to keep the children entertained.

As ever, the show itself was highly successful, with thousands of people attending the day’s events and soaking up the cheerful atmosphere and bright sunshine.

In addition to the traditional county show events, people could also enjoy activities such as Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting, pony riding and a fun fair, as well as being entertained with various arena events, including a spectacular stunt show.

Stephen said “There’s an awful lot of organisation that goes into the events and the committee should be congratulated on another successful show.”

“This is the fourth time we have taken a stall at the show simply to make ourselves available to anyone who wants to talk to us.”

“The Orsett Show is one of Thurrock’s great traditions, one which I hope will continue to prosper and grow.”
