The South Island Motorhome Show was the brain child of Murray and Bev Meadows (Murray formerly branded this weekend as The South Island Motorhome Extravaganza) and became a very popular event for showing, trading and promoting motor homes and caravans. It has been held annually at the Ashburton Showgrounds for 15 years.
The Lions Club of Ashburton became the custodians of this event since 2018. As a Club we acknowledge the efforts of Bev Meadows and her late husband Murray in providing the foundation for this wonderful event.
Our first attempt to organise the event, while a big learning curve, proved highly successful according to the feedback received from a range of sources. Much of the feedback from our questionnaire has been taken on board and hopefully 2019 will see a more vibrant event with a greater range of accessory sites, food options and additional exhibitors from Canterbury and beyond.
It is the intention of the Lions Club to grow the event and to ensure the profits of the South Island Motorhome Show will be distributed in our town and community through our Club’s Charitable Foundation.
