Swanland Show

The annual Show proved successful, once again and, despite the weather, lots of people turned out to see the creations exhibited both by Village residents and non-residents. I have updated the picture gallery to include a few photos from the Show and this year's trophy winners have also been listed on the Trophy Winners 2018 page.

Grateful thanks to everyone who helped put the Show together, supported, exhibited, visited or contributed in any way.  Thanks also to Duchy Homes, our major financial sponsor this year.

Some trophies were not awarded this year, either because we could not determine a clear winner or there were no entries for those particular classes.


The AGM and next Committee Meeting will be held at St Barnabas Church Hall on Thursday 11th September commencing 7pm.


We have lost three Committee members over the year so 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 or email me at swanlandshow@gmail.com
