Summer Show 2021

Our real life Summer Show – 10th July on the field and in the village hall!

We are excited to announce that – barring any government announcements to the contrary, we’ll be holding our show for real. Please come and support the first village event for a long time.

Here is the 2021 downloadable entry form and the  full schedule of classes – or you can pick up printed copies locally at Uplyme Stores, Raymonds Hill Post Office and Ginger Beer in Lyme Regis.

Robin Britton, Society Chairman says: “We are looking forward to getting out to meet people and resuming our normal activities as the summer rolls into view”.

The theme of this year’s show is lavender and the society will be awarding a prestigious new cup in the form of a small solid silver watering can, for the best exhibit in a class on the show theme of lavender.

The schedule details the 115 classes that people can enter and gives the full programme of events.

Competition entries must be received between 8am and 10am on Saturday 10. The show then opens at 1pm after judging has concluded, and features a dog show, entertainment, a wide range of stalls including a plant stall, cream teas and a bar running throughout the afternoon.

The event will close at 5pm after the presentation of awards at 4.30pm.

COVID precautions are to the fore, with all exhibits taking place in a well-ventilated marquee this year. One-way pedestrian flow will be in place, stalls will be well spaced and there will be plenty of hand sanitation points.

Volunteers needed

The society is looking for volunteers to help with the show – local residents as well as members of the society. Those who volunteer as stewards will gain free entry to the show.

Roles involve tasks such as marking up the field in advance, assisting the judges, managing pedestrian traffic flow, manning society stalls, guiding stallholders, managing the car park and helping the catering team.

Anyone who can spare an hour at 5pm on Friday, July 9 or an hour or two at any time between 8am and 6pm on Saturday, July 10 please contact Alan Vian on vianfamily@gmail.com

We hope to see you there 🙂
