Friezland Community Show to bring fun for all the family

THERE will be fun for all the family as Friezland’s Community Show returns on Saturday, September 23 following a hugely successful debut last year.

This year, the event, organised by the church committee, invites locals to show off their skills and imagination in a range of competitions, with sections for adults and juniors.

From baking cakes, growing fruit or vegetables or plants, or showing skills in photography, poetry, painting, sculpture, knitting, crochet, needlework or model making, there is something for everyone.

Rosettes will be awarded for first, second and third places in each class, as well as commended and highly commended certificates in larger classes.

At the end of the day entries will be auctioned off for charity, with funds going towards church repairs, unless otherwise specified.

Entries can be made for free on the day from 8am-10.30am but some have to be in by Thursday (September 21) to be judged – photography, painting, poetry and short stories.

On Saturday, judging will take place from 10.30am-12.30pm before the show is opened to the public at 1pm-5pm, with just £1 entry for adults or 50 pence for children.

There will be a host of entertainment and activities for all the family to enjoy, including Bonneville Bob’s 60s Disco, classic cars and bikes, games, a BBQ, and bar.

And for the first time there will be a fun run, which is open to all ages and starts at 12noon at Well-i-Hole Farm. There is free entry for the race which is around 3k and should take less than half an hour.
