BURWARTON SHOW 2018

The 2018 Burwarton Show was a great success with the weather being perfect both for the exhibitors of stock and our visitors. 

There was a great display of livestock with some magnificent beasts on show.  The horse section was very well supported and due to the showground having an inch of rain the weekend prior, the show-jumping was able to go ahead.  Results for all competition will be posted shortly.

There was a real buzz around the showground and the many attractions that were provided proved to be very well received.  The Conservation area was busy all day, as was the village green and children’s’ play area where the Panic Family Circus kept the younger children well entertained.

The Home and Horticulture sections were full up, and neighbouring that the Food Court was busy throughout the day with the ice cream stands being particularly popular!

Thank you to all the volunteers who help put on this event each year.  A great effort by all without whom all this would not be possible.

Now looking forward to the 2019 show.
