Chairmans Report for 2014 Show

 

November saw the start of our planning for the show. The money we had from Alexander May was spent on new plastic shelving units used to display the show entries, self supporting display boards for the photography section and 4 new banners with the Village Show name and a picture of the Village Hall.

This year was the 35th Show and so Coral the colour and the sea type was adopted as a theme. We had local Sea Cadets, Portishead Lifeboats, Barnacle Bouys shanty singers, homemade icecream, candy floss, a treasure hunt and Pirate Pete to reflect the theme. As ever the village itself ran its usual collection of stalls.

Statistics:

  • 150 people put on a total of 600 entries.

  • Especially popular was the "Wet, wet wet" category from the photography section.

  • SusWot had 3 classes instead of 1 and donated 2 new trophoes in the form of wooden bowls,

  • We matched the record entries of last year

  • The weather stayed fine on the Saturday after a worrying early morning shower and we had 637 adult visitors to the show

The local businesses and Committe members came up with a good variety of raffle prizes

We have had many favouable comments about the show and the Committee are willing to go ahead for next year. We are able to give the Village Hall a cheque for £1,500. It s a true village event and always has a good feeling of friendship and copoperaion about it. Thanks go all who supported us and special thanks to my hardworking Committee members.

2015 Show is Saturday 5th September
