Scarecrows, bunting, wind chimes …all have featured in the popular vote class for the Show (held every year as part of the Village Fete). This year we are trying a new tactic: a mystery competition, to be held between 2.15 and 3 pm at the Produce Show tent. No previous knowledge or skill required! Visitors to the tent will judge the results.
We have a new class for beer or cider to add to our highly popular home brew section. This year we will be getting a special judge, as the growing number of entries for these classes has made it a challenge for the committee to stay sober.
So, cartoonists and limerick writers get sharpening your pencils and quills; cooks get cooking; photographers and gardeners alike dig out your entries. We have a new ‘Any Handicraft’ class, so if your thing is knitting, sewing, crochet, felting, paper-cutting, modelling… or anything in between, we’d love to see what you’re up to. And for the under-16s, don’t forget you can compete for the Joan Sheard trophy for the best Junior entry in an adult class.
Note: After many decades of inflation-beating entry prices, we have increased our charge to 25p per adult entry (if entries come in by 6 pm on the Wednesday before the show), with 50p for each later entry (by 10.30 am on the morning of the show). Children’s entries stay the same, at 10p. We hope this modest price rise will encourage people to hand in their entry forms as early as possible, thus avoiding a last minute card-writing panic.
