This year was an amazing year. Kicking off the show for us we had a flypast from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight's Spitfire, an iconic plane from WWII recognisable not only from it's looks but from it's sound too. We could hear it before we could see it! We had music through out the day from Pure Steel, a local steel band from Heanor who kept the atmosphere going all day for us. And when they weren't playing, the Drakes of Hazard kept us entertained with their brilliant, talented and funny display of duck hearding! Flash the collie kept the ducks in line and made them face their perilous obstacles with ease.
We can honestly say we have never seen so many stalls or people all at our show before! The field was packed with things to see and do, from the cakes and ice creams to the beautiful parrots. We had book stalls, decorative items, hand made gifts and toys, cream teas, cakes, tombolas, raffles, fairground rides... everything you could wish for! Here's to a successful 2020!
