Southwick & Glapthorn Village Show

The Show Results 2019

Once again it was an unpredictable growing year, but exhibits were as plentiful as ever and of the usual high quality. Flower entries were up which made for a grand display in Southwick Village Hall. Children's entries were boosted by the Lego models made by members of the Glapthorn School Lego Club. We were delighted Tina Stone, Landlady of the Shuckburgh Arms Southwick and former resident of Glapthorn, was able to present the prizes. There was a round of applause when Mary Schofield handed the new "Schofield Shield" to Monica Crosby.

The committee wishes to extend a big thank you to everyone who entered for the Show and helped in any way.

The 2020 show (the 57th) will be held in Glapthorn Village Hall - date to be announced.

The Show committee has members from both villages. Needless to say, we welcome new members.
