Despite the horrendous weather leading up to the annual Loxwood Show, the dedicated organisers worked hard to host another successful village event.
The layout of the Show site had to be changed at the very last minute to ensure marquees and gazebos were protected from the storm force winds.
The overall theme of the Show was changed this year to involve as many local children as possible in the various events.
The competitions in the hall were a resounding success and children’s classes were particularly well supported, especially the Vegetable Person, the photography and the cake baking.
For the first year a local Art Exhibition was held and forty paintings from local artists hung on the walls in North Hall.
Local families enjoyed the many varied attractions such as the Dog Show, the Slinfold Band, tombola, face painting, crockery smash and sideshows.
In the main ring, there were many children’s races, a Zumba display, target golf and a tennis ball shoot out.
The Show Committee has thanked the many helpers who supported by manning the stalls and sideshows, as well as our site helpers and recently appointed vicar, Wendy Dalrymple, who opened the show and assisted with the judging of the competitions.
The proceeds came to more than £1600 in total and will be shared between the Alfold and Loxwood Churches as well as North Hall and any other local organisation who applied for some funding.
