Vegetables, Fruit and Flower Section
Well you could virtually grow anything and there would be a class for it.
In Memory of Alby Dale
Potatoes, all sorts of beans, onions and eschalots, carrots, peas and leeks, salad vegetables and tomatoes, not forgetting novices, who have not won first prizes before, who can try a selection of 3 home grown vegetables or fruit, or a vegetable and a flower together - someone must be proud of something. The novice section for children this year is a home-grown herb garden in a pot (min 2 different herbs), or a vase of annuals.
In Memory of Celia Clarkson
Flowers range from annuals to pom pom Dahlias, which are in memory of prize winning resident and councillor John Tubby, sweet peas, pansies, roses and fuschias, plus pots for the patio. All we need now is some sunshine and only a little bit of rain.
Celebrating the "Jubilee" this year, plus 'Lasting Beauty' using dried flowers and seed heads or an arrangement based on a book title - for beginners a flower arrangement just using two colours (plus foliage so that's three) Have a go, you might win!
Titles in this section are - The Queen, Somewhere over the Rainbox, Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer, What a disaster, Me & my Parent, Celebration!, Puddles, and Staycation - a well supported section - what pictures have you taken in the past year.
Classes include a bottle of cordial, homemade liguer, homebrew and a flavoured gin. Cocktails of "The Coronation", and a 'Jubilee' cocktail, to be non-alcoholic!
Again a nice selection this year, all pre 1980, we must all have a something tucked away at the back of a book case or in the attic - select an item of memorabilia from the Queen’s Coronation, an old kitchen utensil, my uniform (photo taken pre-1980), an old village photo from the parish, or a commemorative mug (any event) - next stop Antiques Roadshow!
Usual classes of wheat, barley, oats, hay and oilseed rape, plus potatoes and eggs, and grasses or cereals in a jam jar, then have a look for an old farm photo ( you don't have to be a farmer).
Topics this year are a picture in any medium, a landscape in any medium, or a collage. Start composing your limericks for "Celebration!".
Classes this year include any article of machine sewn clothing, any wollen item, an item of cross-stich or embroidery, a homemade soft toy or cushion. If you've been busy crafting other things, there's an any handicraft class and a seperate one for men, so have a look and see what class you can enter!
Special Family Entry - MDF cutout
This year one large, named and decorated (word associated) BEE - to be purchased from the HUB (every Wednesday and Saturday 10.15 -12.15 at the Village Hall) or next to the Egg Box on Lumley Lane.
In Memory of Ruth McLeod
On your marks, get set, BAKE! In our bake off tent you will be judged on an iced Jubilee celebration cake, fruit scones, soda bread and macarons - to name but a few! Also a carrot cake using Yvonne Peirson's recipe (provided in the Schedule) - what a choice!
Men's Baking class this year is for 4 Cheese Scones.
