September 2022 Show
Saturday 10 September saw the first return of the Holyport Village Show since the pandemic – and the 25th show in its history. The afternoon was well attended by the village visiting to view the exhibits as well as enjoy the refreshments.
While the number of classes this year was condensed, there was still a good turn out of entries in each of the produce, cookery, handicraft and childrens categories.
For the first time ‘Wonky vegetable’ and ‘Digital Art’ classes were included and proved to be very popular, with many convoluted carrots and huge courgettes among the entries. Skylar (11) produced a magnificent crocheted hooded blanket which impressed all the judges and earnt her the Nick Hardy Trophy. This year also saw the first metalwork entries in both the Childrens and Adults handicraft categories.
Ethan Price was the winner of the most points for a child under 9 years and Jessica Hancock took the trophy for children aged under 14. Mrs Petts scooped many trophies in the flower and produce categories while the Hancock family took away the Taylor Cup for the family with the most points
Please note, there was no Sunflower Competition or Open Gardens in 2022.
