The annual show was enjoyed by the many exhibitors and visitors who welcomed the opportunity to take part in an event that has been part of the village life for nearly a hundred years. It was noted that many people were keen to judge the exhibits themselves, either agreeing or disagreeing with the judges opinion!
The exhibits were of high quality and clearly people have been spending their time during lockdown to be creative, the standard of craft work was stunning, and there were more art exhibits than usual. Showing that there are some very talented artists in and around the village.
It's been an odd year for growing vegetables and fruit, with late frosts, drought, rain and heat, however courgettes were bountiful, but fruit scarce.
Flowers were also tricky, but hydrangeas were stunning, and in some cases huge!
It was great to be back in the Barbour and to share the event with so many people from the village.
Unfortunately there were a few gaps. Not so many photographs, although those that were on display were very good. Flower arranging and cookery were also low in numbers.
The Show committee will be reviewing the entries and deciding on next years schedule in the coming month. If you have any suggestions which could engage more people, or encourage more people to take part we would be grateful.
The date was moved a month earlier, this meant that some of the usual competitors were on holiday, the Church Fete had been held the day before, so it's was a busy weekend in the village.
We could not hold the usual Trophy ceremony, so all trophies will be delivered to those who won Best in Section.
The Raffle was drawn by the committee and raffle prizes will also be delivered to all those whose tickets were picked out.
The committee wishes to thank all those who take part, exhibitors, stewards and other helpers, in making this another successful day.
