Old Buckenham Produce Show 2013

Produce your exhibits
The Old Buckenham Produce Show is on Sunday 8 September. Now is your opportunity to put in all your exhibits, whether it is flower arrangements, preserves, other cookery, homemade wine, eggs, flowers, pot plants, handicrafts, paintings, photographs, vegetables and fruit.

Every year there are people looking around at the show tables and saying “Oh I’ve got a better one than that at home”. Make sure you are not one of them by putting in an exhibit or two. (For the economically-minded villagers, it is cheaper to enter two classes and come into the show free in the afternoon as an exhibitor than to come in as a visitor.)
The schedule for the show can be obtained by contacting Doris on 01953 861322.
There are various children’s classes so you may just have time to get the children (or grandchildren) occupied doing something before the end of the school holidays.
This year sees the return of classes for eggs - chicken, duck and bantam. If required, the organisers will supply a simple egg box to display your six eggs but remember that the judge will crack open one of them when deciding on the winner.
This is an open show so entries are accepted from everyone, even people from Stacksford, New Buckenham or Banham. If you can’t get to the village hall on the Sunday morning then someone else can always bring your exhibits along for you. Entries have to be in by 11am at the latest.
So take the plunge and put some entries in this year. You will probably enjoy it.
