Building on last year’s success

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.
