The Committee

One committee member stood down this time.  We are a small committee of 8.  There is no one at present to look after the flowers, fruit and vegetables section.

The show depends on volunteer help.  Please contact us through the Contact Us page if you can lend a hand in any way.

The Highlights of of the Day

Local running Olympian Nick Rose opened the show.  He was accompanied by Cerys, Olympic torch bearer from our local Free School,  It as interesting to see the torch close up. 

The grass areas around the hall had TaeKwando, Hula Hooping and Juggling taking place. 

New catering arrangements saw 120 hot dogs consumed - thanks to Richard Jones for helping us out.  Due to difficulties with help in the kitchen we offered ploughman's lunches rather than hot food but with glorious weather it was well received. 

Many smaller gifts donated by the local businesses or individuals were used this year in a tombola and that was very popular with the children.

Nick Rose chose a piece of Art as the 'Best in Show'.  The picture showed a medal ceremony with the  stadium in the background.  In keeping with the Olympic theme, for 2012 only, we made Gold rosettes for all the first prize winners

It was  a wonderful day and a true Village event.  We were pleased to be able to donate £1,500 to the Village hall funds.
