Reminder: The not to be missed West End Ag & Hort Show tommorrow

My wife’s craft entry is complete, and the kitchen is taken over with her bread making for the West End Ag & Hort Show in Tringham Hall, marquee and recreation ground in Benner Lane. It’s a fun show, where the competition is fierce for the produce, flower, and craft categories. My dear wife is a previous winner in bread and craft. Though I’m only turning up as a visitor, it’s just as exciting for me to enter the hall and marquee after judging, to see the judges results.

There’s more information about the West End, Windlesham & District Agricultural and Horticultural Society Show’s Facebook page HERE.

Lovely traditional village show – the West End Ag & Hort Show

Know locally as the Ag & Hort, it’s short for the West End, Windlesham & District Agricultural and Horticultural Society Show.  Details below. As I said in the title it’s a lovely traditional village show, followed in the evening with a barn dance in the marquee.

My dear wife submits entries into the produce and handicrafts competitions, and has on occasion won first prize with her bread. I’m hoping her entries this year will be as successful.

The trophies for all the classes are spectacular. There’s a frisson of excitement when the judges  conclude their judging and competitors are allowed into the hall to view results. Fingers crossed for another first prize.

West End Ag & Hort: Tractor Ploughing Competition

The full name of the West End Ag & Hort is the West End, Windlesham & District Agricultural and Horticultural Society Show. Quite a mouthful, you can see why locals call it the Ag & Hort.

On the preceding Sunday of the Ag & Hort Show the Society holds its tractor ploughing competition. See details below,

We’ve watched the tractor ploughing competition a few times, and once I took photos, a video, and even interviewed the judges – SEE HERE. It does help that refreshments are available, including hot dogs and the like.
