Swanland Show

                    Hot News       Last Updated: Saturday 5th October 2019



Despite having only received a handful of entry forms by the start of the week, the 2019 Show proved popular with exhibitors and visitors once again.  Flower and vegetable entries were slightly down, no doubt because of the hot summer this year, but floral art and produce entries were higher which compensated in terms of table space.

The picture gallery has now been updated to include images from this year's Show and this year's trophy winners have been listed on the Trophy Winners 2019 page.

Grateful thanks to everyone who helped put the Show together, supported, exhibited, visited or contributed in any way. For the first time, we erected a comments and suggestions board near the Show exit and here are a few of the comments left on the day.

Beautifully Presented, Well Done!

Great Village Show, First Class!

My First Visit, Very Impressed - Will come again!


Lovely Show, Thanks to all concerned. Long may it continue! 
(Please Note - A provisional date of Saturday 12th September 2020 has been booked)


We welcomed Ann Pickett and Margaret Corless to the Committee but we would like to invite a few others to come on board and join our little band. The duties are not arduous; three meetings a year plus the Plant Sale and Show Day itself are the principal activities. If you are willing and able to volunteer your services, even if only to help out on Show Day, please feel free to contact any committee member in person, respond via Twitter, our Facebook page or email me at swanlandshow@gmail.com


Please note that the next Committee Meeting and AGM will now be held at Louise Pepper's house, 93 Main Street, Swanland  on Thursday 24th October commencing 7pm.  Ruth will be sending out the agenda and papers in due course.
