It’s not long now until our show and we hope all your preparations are going well!
We know August is holiday time, so this year up to 4 entries may be registered and staged by a person nominated by the entrant. Therefore if you are to be away sunning yourself, you can still enter that wonderful hand knitted item you made last winter or three of your delicious eating apples.
Early registration was a real success last year, so we are doing it again. You can register your exhibits between 4pm and 6.30pm on the Friday evening before the show as well as from 8am – 10.30am on the morning of the show. But sorry, no exhibits may be staged on Friday evening, you need to come back on Saturday morning 8am – 10.30am to do this.
Don’t forget to bring all your family and friends along when the show reopens after judging at 2pm. You can all enjoy tea with delicious homemade cakes before the prizes are awarded at 4.15pm.
Our final message is to say please read the schedule very very carefully and make sure your exhibits comply with the criteria as stated! Over the past months, our judges who all come from outside the village, have given hints, tips and advice but it is what is stated, or not stated, in the schedule that is the most important.
All the information about the show, the schedule and the criteria specific for each section is at http://www.whissendine.net/craft-produce-show.
See you at the show and good luck!
