Village Show (2014)

62nd Hanley Swan and Hanley Castle Village Show

August Bank Holiday weekend – Saturday 23rd August 2014

The Show opens at

We are looking forward to one of the major social events in the village calendar, as we prepare for the Show once again. Whilst we try to introduce a few changes to keep us up to date, one we have been rather remiss of is going metric! So please do read the schedule closely, as we have changed some of the categories to metric, although our conversions should be close to the imperial measurements.

New for this year is a Plant and Produce stall where we hope to sell donated plants and produce. So if you can’t face eating another runner bean by the time of the Show and have a few to spare, your donations of either produce or plants would be very welcome. These can be left at the Village Hall on either the Friday afternoon or on the morning of the Show.

The Car Boot is on!! Now is the chance for the annual clearout of your garage and loft. The cost is £6.00 per boot. Access to the field on Saturday will be from 12.00 onwards – but please remember that the Show itself opens at 13.30.

Teas and Cakes – wonderful refreshments and home-made cakes will be available from 13.30 onwards courtesy of the kind volunteers from Hanley Castle WI.

The committee are always extremely grateful for any help you can offer towards the running of the Show – helping in the hall – selling raffle tickets – or assisting in the administration. Please contact a member of the committee if you are able to help – even for an hour or so on Friday afternoon when we set the hall up or on the Saturday of the Show. For further details see the schedule enclosed in July edition of Parish Link.
