Jam-packed


On Saturday was our village's annual horticultural and domestic show. 

It's fantastic - a little piece of history that has been going on for over 50 years virtually unchanged!

It takes a lot of time and effort throughout the year to prepare for the day, and we help out with it as much as possible. 

It's so worthwhile - a really community event.

There are masses of entries in over 300 categories, including fruit and vegetables, flowers, handicrafts, art, cooking, and loads of children's sections.

There is a brass band, coconut shy, bouncy castle, face painting, barbeque, cream teas from the W.I. and the local guides helping out on the sweets and ice cream stands.

Just wonderful!

Oh and my "All the Fun of the Fair" crochet mat won second place in the Crochet section. :)

We have a similar event in our village, so I know just how much hard work goes into every aspect of it by everyone involved - organisers and participants alike! Well done - it looked like a great day!
