Free legal advice from Wright Hassall at the Kenilworth Show
Rural businesses will be able to access free legal advice from a leading law firm at Coventry and Warwickshire’s largest one-day agricultural show.
The Kenilworth Show, organised by Kenilworth and District Agricultural Society (KADAS), will take place on Saturday, June 9.
It attracted more than 10,000 visitors last year and will take place on the showgrounds opposite Stoneleigh Park, marking the agricultural show’s 75th anniversary.
Leamington Spa based firm Wright Hassall, which won The Lawyer Award for Regional Firm of the Year 2017, launched a Legal Hub service nine months ago offering a monthly, drop-in session at their offices on Olympus Avenue for local people who may be in need of legal assistance but struggle to afford it.
The firm has now announced it will install a pop up Legal Hub at the event, with solicitors on hand to offer advice and assistance, at their stand adjacent to the main ring.
Matthew Goodwin, Wright Hassall’s solicitor overseeing the running of the hub, said: “We started running our monthly Legal Hub back in September and we are pleased to say that a lot of people have felt comfortable coming to us for help.
“We are holding two sessions, one in the morning, and one in the afternoon so anyone at the Kenilworth Show who is in need of assistance can come to us on the day and we will be happy to help.”
The show features a huge agricultural and entertainment programme, including the Grand Parade of Livestock, farm machinery show and many more attractions in the main ring.
There are activities for children too, such as archery, crossbows and bouncy castles
More than 100 trade stands are also set-up, ranging from arts and crafts, homewares, through to artisan breads and pies.
Charlie Weetman, director of the Kenilworth Show, said: “There are a lot of issues facing rural businesses at the moment, especially here in Warwickshire.
“It’s great that Wright Hassall will be on hand at the show this year to offer legal advice and support to people on the day if needed.
“The Kenilworth Show is more than just a great day out and we pride ourselves on having opportunities like the Wright Hassall Legal Hub available on the day.”
A free shuttle bus, operated by Catterall’s Coaches, will run from Kenilworth Clock Tower to the show throughout the day.
Entry to the Kenilworth Show starts from 9am on the day and children under 16 enter for free.
Advance tickets cost just £10 and are available from Kenilworth Library or online at www.kenilworthshow.co.uk.
