Knights American Cheer were first in the main arena, with an excellent display of agility and balance.
The main attraction in the arena this year was the Shadowquest Dog Display Team, who gave a demonstration of dog training. This is mainly done for security services, such as the police, but the public were encouraged to use some of the training methods with their own dogs, such as teaching obedience.
As usual the Punch & Judy Show was very popular, with up to 40 children with adults enjoying the show. It was fascinating watching their faces!
The donkeys proved the usual attraction, although a sign of the times was seeing the children wearing hard hats during their ride!
The Horticultural Society Show in the marquee was well attended, with most classes having a good amount of entries, including large pumpkins, which unfortunately proved difficult to sell in the auction at the end of the day – even with Halloween coming soon! The W.I. Cakes and ‘Jammy Beggars’ jams and chutneys had their usual successful day (as pictured above).
The numerous stalls around the showground were pleased with their success on the day, promoting their various charities and organisations. There was a very relaxed atmosphere at the show and it was good to see visitors enjoying themselves.
Once again we are appealing for volunteers to join the Friends Group to ensure that next year’s show takes place and also help maintain our park with litter picking and regular care of the Jubilee Garden.
