Southwick & Glapthorn Village Show

A most successful show was held in the Village Hall on 4th September, with strong entries in all categories, and a pleasing turn-out in the children's section, in particular. Rosemary Weatherburn, a resident of Glapthorn for many years, gave away the prizes, and Joy Eastland of Southwick won the Mary Schofield Shield for most points gained.

£100 was raised for Rett UK, which helps those with Rett Syndrome, and the teas raised £100 for show funds. There were many comments about how nice it was to be back (almost) to normal at a sociable village event!

We are grateful for the time and professionalism of the judges, who this year were:

  • Nicholas Warliker – fruit, vegetables and flowers
  • Cherrill Sands – flower arrangements
  • Christine Marsters – handicrafts and children's entries
  • Sian Fox – cookery
  • Michal Lee – photographs

The Committee thanks everyone who helped make the show such a success.
