WHITTINGHAM SHOW 2015

Another fabulous day at Whittingham Show all made possible by the fantastic efforts of local people who set up the arenas and tents, parked cars, baked cakes, made jam, grew flowers, grew vegetables, painted pictures, took photographs, knitted, tended sheep and groomed dogs.

Following an extremely rainy Friday, the sun shone for us on Saturday and thanks to local farmer Eric Rogerson we had a superb field for the show with a magnificent view across the beautiful Whittingham Vale. Some locals were heard saying that “it was the best Whittingham Show ever”. Wow!!

There was another wonderful display in the Exhibition Marquee with a staggering 1,000 entries. The Horticultural Section had a record number of 250 entries and the judge described some of the flowers as worthy of any national competition and commended the growers for producing such magnificent specimens in a poor growing year. The Industrial Section was extremely well supported and the judges were very impressed with the high level of baking skills demonstrated, with a record number of jams and the new Lemon Drizzle Cake Class proving very popular.

There were plenty of other activities on the show field including an excellent dog show, sheep show, athletics competitions, archery and for the first time a popular climbing wall. The highlight however was the delight of the young children in the special children’s tent where they enjoyed pottery, painting, crafts and having their faces painted. Both young and old were held spellbound by the magical and mystical tales told by the storyteller Ian Douglas.

So my thanks go to everyone who helped make this year’s Whittingham Show such a wonderful event and to everyone who attended, I hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did.
