Everyone was amused by the satirical sculpture of Brexit in the handicraft section.

As usual we had wonderful tea and homemade cake which gave us all time for a very sociable chat in the tea tent.

The show was a great village event enjoyed by the many that attended and a good way to see what others in the village can produce.
