Non quis fugiat ad duis ea sunt et pariatur aliqua dolore irure
The Town Show, for all ages, displaying an extensive range of ingenuity and talents across a wide range of classes
The 3rd Godmanchester Town Show was held at the beautiful St Mary’s Church on the 16th September 2017.The weather on the day was kind to us and the wonderful team of helpers were all set to receive the entries by 9.00 am. The great people of Godmanchester came up trumps yet again and we had over 700 entries in total.We had introduced a new Art Category which was to be judged by the public and we were delighted to receive over 40 entries of marvellous art all of which in my opinion should have won but you can only have one winner. The public voted that was Jake Usher.We had a record number of entries in the Children’s Section with over 400 entries most of these coming from the children at St. Anne’s School. We would like to thank them and their teachers for the effort they put in. Again we could only have one winner and this was young Oscar Greagg with his tractor made from recycled materials.All the other categories were well supported and we had a fine display of cakes, flowers, jams , crafts and some fantastic photographs.One of the highlights of the show was the arrival of an enormous Pumpkin grown by the Allotments Society which took two burly men to carry into the church it was quite a sight and needless to say came first in that class.Teas, coffees and cakes were served by the catering team in the church hall and were thoroughly enjoyed by all and thanks to them for their hard work.The day was rounded off by our Mayor Sarah Conboy presenting the cups for best in Category and we would like to extend our thanks to her.I think Godmanchester should give itself a pat on the back for having so much talent in a small community.We are looking forward to the next show on the 15th September 2018 and let’s hope it will be bigger and better if that is possible.Thank you all,Mike Grice and Team.
