WHITTINGHAM SHOW 2016


Despite the threat of severe weather conditions local people entered into the true spirit of village shows and contributed nearly 900 entries for judging in Classes from Horticulture and Handicraft to Baking and Photography. One of the highlights was the commitment and enthusiasm shown by young people who submitted a magnificent 300 entries in the Children’s Section. All the judges expressed their delight at the number of participants and at the very high quality of the entries.

However, the poor weather forecast did deter visitors, but those who did venture out enjoyed an excellent display by the Mordor Gun Dog Display team and were also entertained by the Sheep Show, the Dog Rally and got involved in the archery and climbing wall. Once again children thoroughly enjoyed the activities in the dedicated Children’s Marquee with face painting, circus skills, singing and bubble making to participate in.

I am most grateful to the many local people who have taken so much time and effort to support their village show and create such a wonderful exhibition marquee, in spite of the poor weather.
