Review of last year’s Show – Saturday 11th August 2012
The sunshine drew record numbers of visitors to this lovely, ever popular annual country show. The now famous slow tractor race drew crowds around the main arena, where we also enjoyed displays of carriage driving, shire horses, show jumping, hounds & beagles, ducks & sheep dog, and terrier racing. Alstonefield produced many winners in the Handicrafts & Produce categories including Jean Allen for her bakewell tart and Notty Hornblower in Floral Art. Joanna Griffin took 1st prizes for her knitted toy and jubilee cushion and Carol Eades won with her embroidery. Brian Ross won both photography categories and Cathy Reavy took 2nd & 3rd prizes. Jo Wood won a 3rd prize for her painting. Brian Ross & Rupert Hignett took 1st and 2nd in the men’s coronation chicken. For the children, Edie Hambleton took great delight in accepting the trophy for her picture of the Queen, while Erin Eades & Imogen Pot excelled with 1st and 2nd prizes for their red, white & blue cupcakes. In the Poultry tent, Thomas & Peter Linley won 1st and 3rd prizes for their Light Sussex and Mille Fleur. To see the gallery of photos of the day click HERE
Directions: From Alstonefield, follow the signs to Ilam turning right just before the Watts Russell pub and then immediately sharp left towards Stanshope. Continue through Stanshope and after about a mile and a half you will see the Manifold Showground on your right-hand side.
