“Ever since the original millennium Sheep Fair, the committee has put on an entertaining and memorable event for everyone in Overton every four years.  I have thoroughly enjoyed every one and am very pleased to be taking on the role of chairman as the committee embarks on preparations for the 2020 event.”
