This year’s Show on 6th September was another outstanding success thanks to all those who contributed exhibits and to all the hard work by the Committee and other helpers.
After a welcome by Chairman Mr Colin Payne President, Mr Peter Danby, introduced Dr Julian Lewis MP who formally opened the Show and presented the Cups and Special Awards. There were 553 entries with 145 of those in Div 4 (Young People) with 43 different children producing those 145 entries, amazing! The Judges always rate the quality of the exhibits and are always surprised that a small village like Minstead can put on such a fabulous display. The colours especially were spectacular from the moment you walked in the door. In addition a great many teas were served and greatly enjoyed.
A special note of thanks goes to Mrs Janet Mitchell, Hon Secretary whose tireless efforts, knowledge and experience made the Show such a wonderful and memorable occasion.
