They all say it was so good
VISITORS flocked to the 62nd Alfrick and Lulsley village show on Saturday where, among the attractions, was a display by Malvern’s very own ‘Red Baron’ pilot Richard Goodwin.
“Everyone’s been talking about it, it was so good,” said Daphne Fowler of the show committee.
“The other air attraction, the Dakota from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, had to be cancelled because of technical problems, but I don’t think many people noticed because they were so enthralled by Richard’s performance.
“We were worried about the weather in advance, but on the day it was mainly sunny. We had one heavy downpour in the afternoon, but everyone just took shelter in the numerous marquees and came out when the rain had stopped.”
She said the horticultural show was exceptional.
“We had more than 100 competitors and there was a fantastic display of fruit, vegetables and plants,” she said.
A new attraction this year was the Big Top children’s circus workshop, with Professor Panic teaching youngsters the arts of clowning.
The show also included a dog show and arena displays from the Paws for Thought dog agility team, Appalachian dancing, martial arts displays and tug-of-war.
Enthusiasts brought their vintage tractors and other vehicles, and there were a whole host of stalls and games, including a prize raffle, tombola, bric-a-brac, bottle stall and books.
Carol Bradley, the horticultural show secretary, said: “The vegetables and fruit sections did very well, with many more entries compared with last year.”
She also said there were lots more entries in the art and photography classes, and the children’s and young people’s sections also did very well.
