Upton St Leonards Annual Show 2016 Report

Stacks Image 1029



This was the first time we have had Upton Show after its name change from The Upton Flower Show (which we felt conveyed the wrong image - the Show is much more than flowers!). As usual we had a marvellous collection of fruit and vegetables, cakes and biscuits, jams and pickles, photos and handicrafts and various Children’s sections. We cannot have the Show with you.

In no particular order we are grateful for Jackie Thorogood and her team for providing the refreshments throughout the day and to the wonderful donations of cakes for sale at the Show. Thanks to the Cotswold Big Band for once again entertaining us as we viewed the exhibits and the side stalls. This wasn’t an easy task as the indifferent weather kept the usual crowds away. Thanks also to the volunteers who helped us set up and dismantle throughout the weekend. Thanks to Anne and Andrew Herring for providing the hot dogs and to the Scouts for cooking and serving. Finally our thanks go to the Parish Council and the Lady Downe Trust for supporting the Show financially.

We look forward to seeing you all again next year, on the 2nd Saturday in September (9th). Please check on this Website next Spring to get a preliminary version of the schedule and see future editions of Upton St Leonards Life for exhibits adverts. Very well done to all the winners and thanks to all who entered.
