Southwick & Glapthorn Village Show

The 2018 show will be held in Glapthorn Village Hall on Saturday 14th July when we hope the sun will shine and there are lots of entries. Schedules will soon be delivered to every house in both villages.

Before then there is a coffee morning and plant sale in Glapthorn Village hall on Saturday April 28th from 10.30 to 12.00. This raises money to help stage the Show.

The Show committee has members from both villages.

Chair Julie Hyne

Committee members: Luiz Barnish, Monica Crosby, Pauline Davidson, Joy Eastland, Paul Grandidge, Brigitte Hilton, Julie Hyne, Mary Schofield, Ursula Wide.

Our AGM will be held on Thursday 29th September in Glapthorn Village Hall – please come along.

Last year's show was very successful with the number of entries up on previous years. We were particularly pleased that more children from the two villages submitted entries. The school children from Glapthorn had painted their favourite animals and the judge had a very difficult time choosing the winners as the standard was so high, with some very good 'Garden on a Plate' designs and animals made out of vegetables and fruit.

The winners of the trophies were:-

Tankard Trophy (best vegetable plot): Mr & Mrs Moss
Leaf Trophy (best flower garden): Penny Reading
Touchwood Goblet (best flower bed): Penny Reading
Holly Trophy (best pond/water Feature): Philip Hilton
Pollard Challenge Rose bowl (overall points in horticulture): Malcolm Moss
