Village Show 2018
  • Annual Show

    SATURDAY 14TH JULY 2018 

    The Summer edition of Hamlet again contains a most important document – the Schedule for the Harrowbarrow and Metherell Annual Show, one of the most popular village community events in the calendar.

    The villages have enjoyed 62 consecutive shows – surely a remarkable record. The range of produce, cookery, plants, flower arrangements, arts, crafts and photographs is astonishing and also heartwarming, demonstrating the continuation of the tradition of growing and showing, still strong in our fast-changing world.

    The introduction of the Cider class only 5 years ago has proved popular and entries grow each year, and also now “any alcoholic and non-alcoholic” drinks, so again we are looking for the elderflower cordials as well as the homemade damson gin! We still want to see plenty of homemade wines (no kits please)  so dust off the bottle from your wine rack and put your polished bottles of delicious and unusual wines on the competitor's table.

    For children –from preschool up to 16 years – we have a range of classes, and the chance to walk away with a very fine rosette, and even a cup, and we would like to see all children of all ages having a go. There is truly something for everyone.  Art, handicrafts, models and handwriting appeal to and are important to children of all ages.

    It will help the organisation immensely if as many competitors as possible can bring their entries to the hall on FRIDAY early evening as Saturday morning is very busy with setting up and then the all-important judging before we throw open the doors at 2.15pm. As requested last year, it would also help us a great deal if those stars who won cups last year could return them (cleaned please) to any committee member – look at the back page of the show schedule -  or to the hall on Friday evening.

    The Show remains a popular and important part of village tradition, please “show” your support with lots of exhibits in all classes and then joining us on Saturday afternoon to admire all entries, enjoy tea, cream and cakes and meet your friends. We look forward to seeing you there on SATURDAY 14TH JULY 2018.Steve Matcham

On behalf of the Hall Management Committee........

There have been some complaints about vehicles being parked inconsiderately in the car park at the Hall particularly during school drop off and pick up times.

The main complaint is of vehicles blocking the roadway that leads to the hall entrance doors.

 This is an emergency route for the Hall and the play area and needs to be kept clear at all times.

 Thank you!
