The Village Show.

The pictures and sculptures were done by a long term resident of the village who is now, sadly, in a home. His daughters thought we might like to see them.

This is Chris who writes all the prize cards with a beautiful script.

This bear was donated and we had to give him a name….Aisling from our road won him….Basil…and fell in love with him immediately….Mum said she might sleep now if Basil goes to bed with her!

Some of the produce which was really good considering the weather we had.

My little friends who won several prizes for their handcrafts.

I wonder who grew these two prizewinning beans!!!

The front two are mine and the 1st at the back is Olivia’s…..the little girl in the photo.

2nd for 3 stems ….cosmos.

My pumpkin arrangement.

Some of the other flower entries.

Weighing the potato in a bucket competition and the church plant and produce stand.

Tea time.

And, finally, our local MP Nicky Morgan, who’s son collected a 1st and 3rd for chutneys.

It was a lovely day and really well attended, I wish you could all have been there.

      It is the fourth year Karen and great to see all the different entries. We need to keep the village hall going so all these activities do just that. Really chuffed with my beans :lol: and I can now start picking the next lot to eat!

    This is just a lovely glimpse of life in your village, Cilla – and I do agree wholeheartedly with Mick about village life. It can’t be beaten. Must say I think your arrangement with the pumpkin is brilliant and original, and a well-deserved winner – but I expected nothing less…..
