Duxford Village Show

  Dux Show July 18 2015 040s


 Dux Show July 18 2015 042s


Dux Show July 18 2015 120s


The sun shone; it was warm but not too hot, possibly a little windy but several hundred people came to join in the 2015 Village Show. In the afternoon they visited the stalls, bought cakes, bric-brac, plants craft items, jams and books as well as drinking beer or tea (possibly both) and eating ice-creams and strawberries.

In the evening it was a pleasure to see so many people spread over the Rec on rugs or chairs enjoying the music. The hog roast ran out and the beer very nearly did too.

Overall the Fundraising Committee made just over £2,500 profit (the final figures are still being computed), a significant increase on last year.

The Dogfest, as expected, was a very popular event. Overall, in all classes, there were 76 entries, 55 were paid entries. Best in Show entries were free but dogs had to have been in at least one other class. There were 21 eligible for Best in Show, and the winner was Pip handled by Rob Smit and reserve was Jerry handled by Lola. Many thanks go to Jenny Parker for taking on the hard work associated with running this event.

The Rose competition was a little disappointing as so many people told us their roses had been beautiful last week but over by the time of the Show. (I was one of them!) Nevertheless we did have some entries and the winner was Liz Huckstep.

The Fancy Dress competition was judged by Heidi Allen, our local M.P. and the winner was a Spitfire!

None of this could have happened without the help of all the volunteers, both beforehand and on the day itself. A great big thank you goes to all of you: you made it all possible.

Everyone we have talked to is urging us to put on the Show again next year. We really want to but need more help with the planning and yet more people to help on the day. The first planning meeting will take place on Monday 5th October 7:30pm @ 7, Grange Road. If you really enjoyed the show and can spare a small amount of time, please come along.

If you can't make the meeting but would like to be involved contact Judith Tarrant ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) or Sue Clarke ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it )
