Have your say

A warm sunny day attracted a large crowd to the 134th village show held on Sleights village sports field.

Although entries were a little down on last year, most classes were well supported, and there was a wonderful display of handicrafts and mouth-watering cakes.

Entertainment was provided by The Royale Accordions and there were lots of stalls, a craft tent, display of classic cars and mini steam engines and a fun dog show.

The ladies in the pavilion were kept busy all afternoon serving teas and home-made cakes.

A lovely day enjoyed by everyone, and the show committee thank all the competitors, visitors and the many helpers who willing gave their time to ensure the show was a great success.
