The committee warmly thanks all who made the weekend such a success: many positive comments were received.

Displays by Xtreme Falconry’s birds of prey enthralled young and old alike, as did comic juggling by Haggis Macleod.

There was more for children: stone carving workshops led by local mason Rod Bale; the Rubbish Art Project made mosaics from recycled materials; the Pre-School area had various activities and on Sunday, a Treasure Hunt.

Flower Show entries were slightly down, unsurprising given the hot summer thus difficult growing conditions. Yet children’s entries were up. Maurice Davies, wearing three hats simultaneously, presented the trophies. shows all the winners.

The Barn Dance was according to musicians Rapscallion was “possibly the best year yet for the ceilidh and we enjoyed playing for such an enthusiastic bunch.” Sunshine continued for Sunday: a fun Pet Show was well attended and many smiling happy faces or their dogs wore rosettes, thanks to Delaware Vets of Castle Cary for sponsorship.

The Tug of War was pulled between local teams, including laughing children when they were not Treasure Hunting. The weekend concluded at the Church.

Please bring your comments, positive or negative, to the AGM on Wednesday 7th November at 7.OO pm at the Village Hall, followed by cheese and wine. Anyone interested is invited, particularly if you wish to become involved.
