Saturday 14th September 2019
Saturday is Horticultural Show day! Come and show off your home produce, flowers, baking, and handicrafts and try to win prizes and trophies! There is plenty of other entertainment of the day too so have a look below and see what's happening in the village!
This year was our biggest Horticultural Show ever! With 1071 exhibits, we smashed the previous record we held by over 100! It was incredible to see the turnout from everyone this year, new faces and old, and especially the children's section which looked amazing! Over 500 exhibits were from children this year... which means 500 free bars of chocolate and lots of happy tummies! I'm sure we can squeeze a few more entries in though so lets try to make 2020's show weekend even bigger than this one!!!
