Due to popular demand homemade wine will feature at next year’s Show. Last night the Committee agreed to introduce some new classes for wine plus one for non-alcoholic fruit cordial. More details to follow.
The next Committee meeting is at 7.30pm Thursday 14th November at The Plough, Sturton.
If you have ideas for possible new classes for next year, do come along or contact one of the committee.
Another successful show, albeit a little down on entries this year compared to our 125th BUMPER Show in 2012. The committee will be analysing entries and looking at introducing new classes where entries this year lacked interest.
Are you particularly adept at anything which isn’t catered for, if so why not get in touch with the committee and let them have your suggestions, better still why not come to our next meeting at the Plough in November; date to be published shortly.

If you missed the Show you missed a treat, but you can view some of the exhibits in the photographs kindly sent to us by one of our judges, Mr Alan Wright.

It is almost time for the Show. We will be setting up tonight and, in the morning, people will be bringing in their entries before 10am. Then it is over to the Judges to do their work. We are very fortunate in having a band of judges who give of their time each year and without them the Show would not be as successful as it is. We really appreciate their contribution – a big thank you to them all.
The classic car parade will leave the Cross Keys at 1.15 and the Show will open to the public at 1.30pm.
Let’s hope for good weather, but whatever it is like, we know there will be an excellent range of exhibits for everyone to see.
See you there.
It’s Wednesday night and the Show is almost upon us. Did you forget to go to the Village Hall tonight and submit your entries? Don’t worry, Pam R will be delighted to receive your e-mailed entries up to mid-day Thursday 3rd October; I know the other Pam said 0900 but I am more lenient than she is! I might even go to 1230.
To get an on-line entry form please go to the schedules tab and you should find one there together with a copy of the show schedule.
Nothing more to say other than I’m going back to my stove to finish making my damson chutney (it’s 2330); my neighbour had a glut of damsons this year (I had Victoria plums). If the chutney doesn’t get a prize this year it may be mature enough in 2014!
Good luck with your entries.
Last year the Association celebrated its 125th Anniversary, which in itself was no mean achievement. There were bumper exhibits, great displays, good crowds and the weather was pretty good too, which all made for a wonderful day. This year the Association is hoping to do even better.
Tony Scawthon, Chairman of the Association, said: “I am proud to have been Chairman of the Association for the last few years. The Show is so much a part of the community with different generations of families taking part, but also new people coming to live in Sturton and Stow getting involved and becoming very much part of village life. We have many traditional classes, but we also like to ring the changes and we have a number of new classes this year including in cookery, which has had a big boost the last few years with the success of the Great British Bake Off.
On the day, we have a parade of classic vehicles, archery, birds of prey (including Twiglet, the owl), local organizations and craft stalls as well as the amazing range of exhibits. We are also pleased to welcome Mickey Mouse, who will be visiting the Show and is keen to meet fans, young and old. Refreshments are provided by the Youth Club, who always do us proud. There is also an auction of produce after the prize-giving and great bargains can be had.
We welcome locals and also visitors from further afield. If you have never been, do come along and join us for a great day out. “
Admission to the Show is 50p minimum donation, 30p for children. .
The Show is at Sturton School 1.30 – 4.30 Saturday 5th October 2013.
