Upton St Leonards Annual Show 2017
Report

Stacks Image 1029



Shock News! Hurricane Irma broke wind! Well, that's what it felt like on Saturday 9th September when Upton Show was held. Thunder, lightning, and rain did dampen the spirits a bit but there were plenty of entries for those brave enough to attend to view. A BIG thank you to all those that came to support us.

Thanks to the exhibitors, the local firms that donated raffle prizes (Bowden Hall, Hatton Court, Rococo Gardens, Portway Farm Shop), the Parish Council and Lady Downe trust for financial support and for the variety of willing helpers both on the day setting up and taking down tents, chairs and tables etc. 

We were very fortunate to be entertained by the Cotswold Big Band.I know it was quite loud in the marquee but the sound was superb and imagine what would have happened if they had been outside? I think the Titanic score would have become a bit repetitive?

The Committee will be losing some members and whilst no-one likes to commit for fear of being dragged in we really do need new and extra input. There will be a call to arms in the next few weeks but please do give it some consideration. I can hear Leo Sayer singing: The Show Must Go On!
