The Village Produce and Crafts Show

The Village Show follows a tradition in the village that goes back generations but it also helps to raise money to help maintain the Village Hall, which is the envy of many other villages. The show has raised over £2000 in the last five years, and those who organise it freely give their services, BUT we continue to need YOUR support.

This Year's Village show took place on Saturday 7th September 2019.

Once again it was a well attended show. Thanks to Jane Chandler and her team for providing Tea and Cake. Always relieved by 12 noon on the Saturday to see the tables in the hall full of entries, but we can always cope with more! Thanks to all those who entered, and those who came to the show, we made £363 profit towards the Village Hall. But, this event is not just about money. My committee and I love the friendly, competitive, spirit that this traditional show brings to the village. We hope that, with the help of those who live in our village, this event will continue for many more years. If you are interested in joining the organising committee, or have any ideas for next year, please let me know.

The Village show will have the traditional format again of Produce, Cookery, Flowers, Arts & Craft. There will be a raffle at the end of the show, with some great prizes. We are always pleased to see a contribution from the Children of the Village with a prize of the prestigious children's cup!

The Show is nothing without each villager's contribution and we are always grateful to those who enter each year.
