RIX Petroleum supports show for 10th year
A thriving petroleum company is fuelling its support for the region’s agricultural industry by backing the Kenilworth Show for a tenth year.
RIX Petroleum Midlands, based on Station Road in Coleshill, will be the principal sponsor for the show which takes place on Saturday, June 8 on the showgrounds opposite Stoneleigh Park.
The company opened for business in the region in 2009 and has supported Coventry and Warwickshire’s largest one-day agricultural show ever since.
Over the past decade RIX Petroleum Midlands has seen significant growth, growing from two tankers and drivers to a fleet of 13.
RIX Petroleum is a fifth-generation family business and has a history of strong relationships in agriculture.
Director Paul Doherty praised the firm’s relationship with the agricultural community in the region as a key driver behind the business’s growth.
He said: “We do a tremendous amount of business within the agricultural sector across Coventry and Warwickshire and supporting the Kenilworth Show is a fantastic way to give back to a community that has always supported us.
“When we set up the business in the region, the Kenilworth Show was one of the first events we supported and year-on-year it has been a very successful relationship.
“We are continuing to expand our client base in the agricultural sector and our success is directly associated with the loyalty of the local farming fraternity.
“A lot of the farming community are now our friends and we look forward to welcoming everyone to this year’s show. We will have a hospitality marquee with complimentary drinks and a Prosecco Cart provided by Fizz Fella’s serving a welcome glass of bubbles.”
The Kenilworth Show is organised by Kenilworth and District Agricultural Society (KADAS).
Charlie Weetman, Director of the Kenilworth Show, added: “Having support of companies like RIX Petroleum is vital in helping us to put on the best possible show each year.
“Paul has been a valued friend of the show for many years now and joined the KADAS committee to further support us.
“Our show has been able to grow and develop thanks to the support of RIX Petroleum and we are delighted they are on board for a tenth year.”
Advance tickets for the Kenilworth Show cost £12.50 and are available from www.kenilworthshow.co.uk.
Tickets can also be purchased from Kenilworth Library and Farmers Fayre at Stoneleigh Park.
Gates open at 9am on Saturday, June 8 and a free shuttle bus will run from Kenilworth Clock Tower to the show throughout the day.
