Gorgeous weather for the annual August Show – 2013


Well, sorry for the delay in uploading this ‘blog’, but we’ve been trying to reinstate our home after the ‘never to be forgotten’ awful storm which occurred here in the village on Tuesday 23 July. So, moving on, what a show, the sun shone, the crowds came and created a wonderful village atmosphere which we hope was enjoyed by all who attended. Thank you to all those people who made the show a success by participating in some way and coming along to relax, see the entertainment on show and even join the continuous queues for ice cream!

The marquee looked and smelled fabulous. The young people excelled themselves again, with imaginative and creative entries. Our handicrafts section demonstrated people’s skills and talents. The photographic section, growing in entries each year was as popular as ever. In fact the village hall seemed to be full of chatter all afternoon as visitors enjoyed teas, cobs and homemade cakes. We also had a ‘hog roast’ this year to tempt visitors.Numerous attractions included the following; Carlton Brass, punch and judy, the amazing Dako Flying Angels (see photo to this blog), many stalls and exhibits and this year, the popular pony rides.

The presentation of trophies and awards was followed by the ever popular and lively auction with our fantastic auctioneer doing a great job.

We would love to hear your views of the show and any suggestions as to how we can continue to improve it in the coming years. Please send us your comments.
