Get set for Wimblington show
This year’s Wimblington and Stonea Summer Show, one of the highlights of the villages’ summer season, will take place on Sunday, July 5.
The venue will be the village hall in Addison Road and once again the show covers a wide range of activities – from cookery and preserves, through vegetables, fruit and flowers, art and handicrafts, to quilting, eggs and honey and home brew.
There are categories for every age and ability, so there is something for everyone to try their hand at, regardless of their level of expertise.
Watch out, also for a seed swap, so you can bring along your unused seeds – it doesn’t matter if they old and out of date, someone might be able to encourage them to germinate. They don’t have to be shop bought; if you have collected seeds from your garden or greenhouse, just pop them in a paper bag, label them and bring them along. You can pick whatever seeds have been brought in by others and there is no cost.
The show is well supported by many local businesses and some of which have generously contributed cracking prizes for the draw; but if you want to win, then you have to be there to buy a ticket!
Entries for the show will be accepted on the evening of Saturday, July 4, between 6pm-7pm, and also between 9am-11am on the morning of Sunday, July 5. Entrance to the show for the public costs only 25p, which is fantastic value for an afternoon’s entertainment. It’s an event for everyone, young or old, and officials say: “Please come along and support this village show.”
