Produce Show 2014

The 60th Huttons Ambo Flower & Produce Show took place on Saturday 16th August.

Entries were particularly good – particularly the younger children who produced some really imaginative and colourful entries.

We were not popular with the swallow family who had taken up residence above the door and for whom our comings and goings just disrupted the stream of food to the brood (see pic).

The Rector Taff Morgan presented the prizes and Andy Dorman took his usual role of MC.
Teas were tasty and gorgeous as ever – provided by Sarah Clark and her team and it was a really great day.

Thanks to the committee and all helpers.

Particular thanks to Howard & Tara Wallis who are standing down from the committee and welcome to Ruth & Neil Hannah who are joining us for 2015.

Finally a HUGE THANK YOU to Denise & Noel Savage who have organised their final village show raffle after decades of great service and now retire to enjoy the show as spectators for many years to come we hope.
We will not be having a post show public meeting due to availability of committee members but if you have any comments or suggestions about ways to improve the show or classes we could add then please contacts or drop a note in at Herbie’s.

Then followed our Hoe Down Evening – with tasty supper and line dancing led by the fantastic Sarah Swindells.

Participation was high and the dance floor was filled with around 35 keen stompers and many spectators comfortably enjoying a beer or a Pimms looked on. 

Cowboy boots and hats and much laughter were a plenty and if you imagine Village People meets Toy Story with food and beer – you get the picture. 

Men of Huttons Ambo in particular – you did us proud!!!

It was a fantastic night and everyone really enjoyed the opportunity to socialise even if the dancing wasn’t their thing. I am sure we will look for some further opportunities for such nights going forward.

Thank you to everyone who supported and attended the evening.
