The 2018 Show is not far away now . . .

 

Please put the date in your diaries:
Sunday 26th & Monday 27th August 2018.


 
Brush up your archery….nurture your vegetables….arrange your flowers….practice your egg and spoon technique….teach your dogs to run hell for leather….frame you paintings…sharpen your ploughs….polish your old cars….

The Show is just round the corner!

Horses are being prepared….allotments, gardens and window boxes are being watered….tractors are being serviced….cars are being polished….animals are being chosen….
Look forward to seeing the results of many people’s hard work over the last year, including all the above activities

Support the Show, which helps keep the churches of the Five Parishes open and active. We can easily take these wonderful historic buildings for granted, as they seem to have always been there. The centuries since they were built have seen generations of families pass through them, countless weddings, christenings and funerals and huge changes in village life.

It would be nice to think that Daisy, Countess of Warwick would still recognise the show that she started in Victorian England. A chance for local people, including the tenants and those who worked on the Easton Lodge Estate to:

parade their produce:…admire their apples…arrange their antirhinums….brag about their brussel sprouts….compare their carrots….envy their endives….exhibit their elderflower wine…. layout their leeks….measure their marrows….organise their onions…park their pumpkins….pamper their pansies….pickle their peppers….polish their potatoes….show their shallots….spruce up their sprouts….turnout their turnips……

Much as will still be on show in the horticultural marquee at this year’s show!
