East Bridgford Village Show

East Bridgford Village Show took place yesterday.  It was their 150 year anniversary so they pulled out all the stops. 

The main marquee was filled with cakes, crafts, vegetables, fruit, flowers - and lots of silver cups.

There were Scottish Pipers, school bands, Morris Dancers, the Wye Valley Axemen and Bernie Bennett Superhero riding a cycle across a tightrope. We had a tug of war competition, a Dakota fly past, a fancy dress parade, a dog show and an egg throwing contest. Bee-keeping, tractors, sheep shearing, old cars, stalls and refreshments.  The best attraction of the day though had to be the Punch and Judy Show - it was such a joy watching the reaction of the small children as they yelled "He's behind you!" to the puppets.

The committee obviously put hours, weeks and months of planning in to it - it was well worth their efforts.  Every one had a great afternoon and I came home with yet more plants!!!
The photos (by Andy Mason ... yes, again!) are the winning entries in the Vase of Mixed Flowers Competition.
