See show entries in the marquee, live music and dance on the field, country skills demonstrations, and the visiting alpacas and shetland ponies. Enter your pet in – or just watch the fun of – the Family Dog Show, take a ride on the miniature steam train, learn about beekeeping and yarn spinning, join in the sideshows and see the craft stalls. Admission £2. Refreshments will be available in the village hall all afternoon.

Take a look at the Schedule to see what Classes of the Show you might enter – whether you are a member or not – and get your entry forms in by 9pm on Wednesday July 13th. See details by downloading the Schedule with entry form HERE.  If you are submitting your entry by email, please send it to Robin Britton (NOT as the Schedule says to Beryl Denham). Robin’s email address:
