Village Show 2017

Well what can we say about it other than it was yet again another tremendous success.  The weather was kind, although rather cool later on which meant the cups of tea were more popular than the cold drinks.  It was the first time we ran out of cakes in the tea tent!

The comments from those who visited were overwhelmingly positive, a real country show without being commercial, please don't change anything!!

Arthur Fox had gathered together a very fine display of Shire Horses and carriage driving.  Together with the pony club and those with an appetite for horses were well catered for.

 

Where John Edwards found all the amazing cars, and vehicles of interest, along with the vintage tractors we will never know, they were a sight to behold.

There was something for everyone, the children went home exhausted.  They had a great time.

And, we made a very good profit.  The Treasure has reported we have £9,500 clear in the bank.  We will be distributing monies to one or two local charities at the Harvest Supper on October the 9th.

About the Show 2017

Funds raised this year for our village charities, the church and village hall, along with local children's charities.

The highlight of the show for the children will be the hour-long races and activities in the ring.

We welcome people of all ages to try out archery with our professional instructor - a new addition to this year's show,  take part in football and the coconut shy competitions and of course test their strength in the tug of war.

For animal lovers we have many horse events including a parade of 10 Shire horses, The Pony Club will be showing off their skills and Shetland pony carriage driving is a sight to behold.
