Relax over tea/coffee & cake

As usual, the Show is a local community event, welcoming entries not only from members, but also from any resident of Lavant and Summersdale, as well as any Lavant allotment holder.

Moreover, any of their children or grandchildren aged between 5 and 15 can submit entries, no matter where they live, as can any pupils of Lavant Primary School and members of Lavant Junior Church.

If you haven’t done so already, get out your camera, smartphone or tablet to take your entries for the Photographic Classes:

  • Stormy Weather
  • Black & White
  • Close-Up

Don’t worry if you’ve not entered the Show before – there’s plenty of help available.

Entry Forms must be submitted by 5 pm on Wednesday 4th August (details on Entry Form).

Just under two weeks left to submit your Entry Form.

Will my runner beans be ready?
Will my sweet peas still be good?

Given the weather we have had to cope with, it’s no surprise if there are some things in doubt.

The simplest thing is to put them all on your Entry Form, even the doubtful ones.
That way, you can see how they look on the day.

Even if something on your Entry Form doesn’t make it, it only cost 10p (15p for non-members).

It attracted a very large number of visitors. The café area & the marquee on the green were full of people chatting whilst enjoying the delicious home-made cake.
2018 had seen a record number of individual entries at 416. However, in 2019 they rose dramatically to 477.
The quality of exhibits was also high, with judges commending the high standards of the Show.
Of the record number of 58 exhibitors, 31 won a first prize in at least one class, whilst 48 won a first, second or third prize.
In spite of the greater competition & wide spread of prize-winners, Michael Kingsford still excelled: not only did he win the trophies for most points in the Show overall, in the Vegetable & Fruit classes and in the Flower classes, but the number of points he accumulated in each of these three categories was twice that of the exhibitor in second place.
