Village Show 2021 & 2022


All Saints Summer Show  2022

All Saints Summer Village Show 2022 

Saturday July 16th 1.30pm to 4.30pm


At last we are able to welcome you to the All Saints Village Show 2022. For the ‘old-timers’, the schedule will look broadly familiar with classes for cooks, flower arrangers, flower gardeners, vegetable growers, artists, photographers, crafters and young people with flair and enthusiasm. The eagle-eyed among you will have spotted a small but relevant change to the schedule. This year’s committee has decided, after some considerable thought, that the ‘men and boys’ class is outdated in 2022 so we have re-allocated the Louise Doman Cup to become first prize for The Junior Classes, which have been extended.

We believe there is a competitor in all of us but if you would prefer to just peruse the exhibits, enjoy cream teas, wander around the stands in the playground, catch up with friends and meet new people, you won’t be disappointed!

There is little doubt that you will want to have a go at the raffle; the prizes this year are truly amazing. The Church will host a slideshow showcase of photography of the local area, old and new. There is so much to look forward to, including delicious cakes, scones and ice-creams, a tombola from All Saints School PTFA, home-made fudge, information on trees and local footpaths, as well as The Hedgehog Hut charity. We hope there will be something for everyone, be it in the hall, the school or the church on July 16th 2022.

All Saints Summer Show  2021

The day dawned sunny and warm as 19 entrants, some hopeful, some less hopeful, brought their Spuds-in-a-Bag and their nettles to the welcoming music of the Offbeats.

Last year’s winner, David Kowal, threw down the gauntlet with 1,102 grams of potatoes, but could only achieve a worthy second place. Peter Spencer, a previous holder of this prestigious award, weighed in with a socking 2,465 grams. David’s father, Stan, produced 1,052 grams to take third place and Jean Shaw just missed out on a podium place with 1,044 grams. Here is a list of the results.

Even more competitively fought for was the dubious accolade of winning the longest nettle competition. The winner was Clive Bareham with 286.5cm, closely followed by Anthea Bareham with 272cm, this prompted a remark from the audience that “it says something about your garden!” Ian Bateman was third with 268cm. However, as nettles go, Ian’s specimen was a superb example and was given special mention and an award of a chocolate orange. Here are the results.

Whilst you are here, scroll down and take a look at the virtual Summer Exhibition. The limericks are especially entertaining and some additional photographs have been added of the presentation of the All Saints Challenge Trophy.

Dare I say we look forward to a full show on traditional lines next year!

How to view the All Saints Summer Show Virtual Galleries:

The pictures should change automatically, but you can also navigate through the galleries by using the arrows either side of each image.  The arrows are white on light grey and therefore a little difficult to find!   You can alternatively use the arrow keys on your computer. 

Hover your cursor over the image to pause auto-scroll.  If you find the images have stopped changing over, it may be because your cursor is on the image, or the area around it.  Move the cursor out beyond the arrows.

Enjoy the Show!
