Results of the Whissendine Produce and Craft Show 2016

Wow, what a talented village we all live in!

102 exhibitors braved the elements, and an early start, to stage their entries, with even more returning in the afternoon to view the event, and have an excellent afternoon tea. The church was humming with excitement, a few squeals of delight were even heard, and it was lovely to see so many villagers enjoying themselves, even if they didn’t win. But win they did too with 44 individual class winners out of 75 that were entered, and 502 exhibits. So we can confirm that this will be a regular fixture in the village social calendar.

See the winners of each section below by clicking on the tabs.
