Community - Parish Show


The 2023 Parish Show took place in the Church on 2 September. The Committee was pleased at the number of entries, not only in our gardeners’ and cooks’, but in the artistic, creative classes – art, crafts and photography. Although sparse in the number, the children’s exhibits were of a high standard and much admired.

The Committee was delighted at the support of this event from the village who came to look and admire, and to enjoy the teas and stalls. We would like to thank all our helpers, furniture movers, stewards, tea teams, runners and of course our judges. We are very thankful to our sponsors and local businesses for providing our raffle prizes.

We are pleased to report that we achieved our highest profits so far, and show profits will be donated to local causes.
