Village Show

Thanks to the dedication of the show committee, we once again had the pleasure of the Townshend Show.  As usual the hall looked splendid, colourful and interesting.  A village show is fun and unites people creating a feeling of well being and a sense of community.  Entering the competition classes can give us new skills and interest; winning is just a bonus.

The show is a very social occasion; renewing friendships and bonding with like minded people over tea and  cake.  Everyone is willing to advise and help beginners, so no one needs to feel they can’t just give it a go!  Look out for the 2019 schedule next year.

A great deal of organising goes on behind the scenes to put on a show, so once again very many thanks to the show committee and their team of helpers for another great day.

See you all next year!  From the Happy Show-goers!

The Show Committee would like to  thank everyone  who contributed  to make the Show such a success, from those of you who entered, to the judges, the stewards and everyone who worked so hard to make the hall look so good and the day a success.  And thank you Happy Show-goers for your kind words.

The People’s Choice Cake competition raised £40 for The Alzheimers Society.  The Show Committee have decided  to donate a further £40 to St Julia’s Hospice.

‘The Giants of Science’

Howard Coggins knows nothing about Science.  Stu Mcloughlin knows even less.

Nevertheless they have agreed to give a lecture on the subject, and af­ter enlisting the help of the smartest scientific sages of the ages, that’s just what they aim to do.

But even with the likes of Albert Einstein, Galileo, Isaac Newton, Mary Anning and…um…Kris Akabusi along for the ride, the chances of the dim­ witted duo making it through the evening with any sense of dignity re­maining intact seems less than likely.  Still, they’re determined, like a pair of atoms missing a couple of electrons, to stay positive.

With jarring jokes, pitiful puppetry, and the silliest of scientific songs, you can expect this raucous romp through the hilarious history of scientific stupidity to be…well, if nothing else, thoroughly entertaining.

It might even be…Scien-triffic!  It will be hilarious!
