KILMINGTON VILLAGE FAYRE AND FLOWER SHOW

Saturday, 27th July 2019
The schedule of classes for this year’s Show will be posted here shortly.

The rain and wind failed to dampen the enthusiasm of local villagers and visiting holidaymakers for the entertainment on offer at the Kilmington Annual Flower Show and Village Fayre. There was plenty for visitors to see and do including old-fashioned skittles, all manner of games and a display of classic tractors and motorbikes. The entertainment was provided by Mister Bumble who once again kept the children hugely entertained with his balloon making, tricks and magic. The children’s fancy dress saw some very imaginative outfits, the winner being a traffic light! Those who took part in the dog games and the children’s and adults’ racing had great fun. Visiting this year were Garwynn’s reptiles and bugs who had a crowd around them all afternoon, and several villagers were spotted wearing snakes!

Musical entertainment was provided by Chris and Ollie of ‘In2 the Blue’, and Carey’s ‘Mobile New Inn’ kept everyone well-watered while keeping everyone well fed was the Kilmington branch of the RBL with their BBQ and the ladies from the Baptist church serving tea and cake. There was a great atmosphere with everyone relaxing and enjoying themselves.

As you will see from the photos, exhibits in the Floral Marquee ranged from brightly coloured flowers and floral arrangements, to vegetables and fruit, not to mention some very colourful and creative children’s entries – such clever uses of wooden spoons! The other sections of the Gardening Club Show were displayed in the village hall – cookery, preserves, wine, craft work and there was some high-quality art work and fascinating photographs of trees, flowers and wild waves! There was a marked increase in the number of photographs – possibly a sign of the times! Once again, the quality of the entries was praised by the judges. We hope the photographs here and on the home page give an indication of how good the entries were in all sections!

We were delighted to see so many lovely entries in the Kilmington Fayre and Flower Show – many of them made at our Children’s Workshop held a week before the Show. There are some very creative children living in our village and they allowed their imagination to run riot with a wonderful selection of decorated wooden spoons, puppets made from socks, mittens or paper bags and pictures depicting a favourite story on a plate. Here are just a few of the entries:
