This annual event celebrates the life of our community
and offers a taste of rural life to visitors from far and wide.
The Marquee provides an exhibition space for local produce: flowers, fruit, vegetables, wine and honey.
Children and adults display their skills in baking, preserving,
crafts, photography and art.
The Horse Show, Dog Show and entertainment in the main arena provide plenty to see outdoors, and there's a classic vehicle display, sideshows, stalls, all sorts of fabulous attractions and lots of places to eat and drink.
There's a lot to do, if we're to equal the success
of last year's Show - but the committee is already
well ahead with planning.
The theme this year is Musicals!, which should provide
lots of fun for Fancy Dress, and for the Scarecrow Trail.
Thanks to the record takings in 2016, the finances
look healthy and the officers have agreed to make
donations to village groups totalling £7,000. They are:
£3600 - Village Hall; £800 - Pavilion; £400 - Guides;
£400 - Brownies;
£400 - Rangers; £400 - Drama Group; £400 - FOBS;
£400 - Play Area; £200 - UniTea.
If you would like to be involved
in preparing for the next Show, please come to the next committee meeting:
Monday 27 March 2017, 7.45pm in the Pavilion.
New faces and new ideas always welcome.
