Each year, on August Bank Holiday Monday, it hosts its own Village Show. The next Show in 2015 will be the 49th Show. This popular event, which provides live music all day and entertainment for all the family, is well supported by local exhibitors, and attracts visitors, including many tourists and holidaymakers, from a wide geographical area.

This year’s show will be held on Monday August 31st on the playing field and in the Village Hall. The Marquees and field will be open from 8.00am to enable competitors and exhibitors to bring their items for display, and to allow trade and charity stalls to be set up.

All competitive displays must be in place by 11.00am when those Marquee areas will be closed for judging, re-opening at 2.00pm. As before there will be an additional marquee for the display, demonstration and sales of Art and Craft. Non-competitive marquee areas and the showground open at 11.00am along with the stalls, sideshows and other attractions, accompanied of course by live music, entertainment and refreshments all day. The Companion Dog show commences at 12 noon, the children’s fancy dress is at 2.15pm followed by the Pet Show at approximately 2.45pm. Presentation of cups and trophies for Children’s Classes takes place at 4.15pm and for all others at 4.30pm. Children’s Sports will also begin at 4.30pm. The raffle is to be drawn at 5.30pm.

As of 22/8/2015

New items this year include workshops where you can participate in exploring Family History, Paper Craft or Cord & Braid Making (now reinstated). Unfortunately, because of illness, the model railway will not be present and the archery cannot take place because of health and safety reasons. However, weather permitting, the GB Gokarts will now be present.

Professional genealogists will be running the Family History Workshop. It will help if those interested have details of some names and dates pre 1911 to enable research.


In the Schedule we missed a bit  off the eggless chocolate cake recipe. Please add section below to the end of the recipe

Bake for 50-55 mins until the cake is well risen and springy to touch. Cool in the tin for 15 mins before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
