Being part of the Show.

Over the next few weeks we are going to include short pieces from different people,  who are involved with the Show, about why they enjoy being part of it. I’ll kick off:

“We started coming to the Show in the 80’s after we moved to Stow. I always said that one day I would try entering the domestic classes and  that is what I  eventually did in 2001. I got a third for my chutney and the same for a pickle and I’d got the Show bug. Over the next few years I discovered a competitive streak I did not know I had! Family and friends got to sample cakes, pies and preserves galore, I had great fun and my jam making improved no end.
 
It has been great to be a part, albeit a small one, of a tradition that goes back 125 years. We  sponsor a cup in memory of my mother, who taught me to cook, and which aims to encourage young people in baking. I now steward and love to see the joy on the faces of old and young alike when they see their work on display.
 
I would encourage everyone to get involved either visiting on the day, exhibiting or helping behind the scenes. It is a chance to be part of a great tradition.”
