Saturday 5th August 2017
What a fantastic day the 2017 Show was! In spite of a couple of quick showers, the weather was great. Very many thanks to eveyone who came and entered into the spirit of this excellent village show. The number of competitors in the produce marquee was higher than ever: the judges were very complementary about the standards of exhibitors. All through the afternoon there were entertainments, music, competitions, great food, lots of chatting, lots of laughter. The day was a celebration of community and village life.
Please get in touch with the Secretary if you have any comments, or better still, might be willing to get involved with helping to develop plans for the 2018 Show run smoothly...
Gates open at 12.00, and the barbeque and Tea Tent will be serves refreshments and lunches until late in the day. The Produce Marquee opens at 1.00pm and the afternoon proceeds with a swing!
Whether it is a cup of tea and crab sandwich in the traditional tea tent, or a cheeseburger with a glass of local ale or cider, no one need go hungry or thirsty. The produce tent hosts an array of local growers' vegetables, fruits and flowers, alongside home - made cakes, jams and wines. There are sporting activities which will include the Tug of Fun and the Loddiswell Mile. Through the afternoon there is a busy programme of activities, entertainment and music as well as plenty of time to chat, laugh, and relax
Over the years, the judges have come to expect some very high quality exhibits at Loddiswell, and we are frequently complemented about many of the classes.
