Wenvoe Village Show
Wenvoe Village Show
Wenvoe Village Show – The show this year was well supported by the village. We received nearly 300 adult entries and we raised £354.55 for the Library.
The dulcet tones of the village choir commenced the proceedings and Johnny Tudor and Olwen Rees opened the event. As well as the produce and culinary categories, we had a record number of artworks submitted, all to a high standard which made judging reallydifficult. We also received beautiful crafts and needlework and a host of entries from the children in the village. The show ended with the public tucking into the beautiful cakes and produce entered into the show. Congratulations to the overall winner Gail Griffiths, and to the second Isobel Davies and to the joint third winners: Gordon Jones and V’Iain Fenton-May.
This was the second show organised by Wenvoe Community Library and we would like to extend our thanks to everyone in our community who supported the show. Thanks also to the judges, entrants, volunteers, Johnny and Olwen, the choir, who all gave freely of their time and to all who made the event possible and extra special thanks must go to the Show’s organisers Janet Williams, Heulwen Davies and Sue Hoddell who did a fantastic job
We hope you are planning for next year. The Show will be on 5th September. Look out for next year’s schedule which will be available in the Spring. We shall have even more categories including a fun dog show.
It is by taking part in community events that makes our village a great place in which to live.
