Your VPA Committee are keen to hold the Winter Show again, covid prevented us last year, so we are seeking your feedback and support to make a success of it. Of course we will make it a ‘safe’ event so that everyone feels comfortable in taking part whether that be making entries, helping on the day or just enjoying viewing everyone’s hard work!

All your favourites will be there again, Vegetables, Floral Art, Photography, Art and Handicraft, Children’s Classes, Pets, Preserves, Wines & Spirits & Cookery including of course the Gentleman’s Cake Class. Let us know please if you can have additional ideas of classes that might attract a high number of entries.

We would like to put the schedule of classes together in December and make that available online or hard copy for everyone by 5th Jan so please speak to us asap with your thoughts

Help needed:-

Volunteers needed to assist us on the day. We will need helpers to get tables prepared, Stewards to manage the classes, someone to manage entry fees on the door, people to help serve tea/coffee and cake, gifts of raffles prizes. Just email June with a short note of how you would like to contribute.

Can those brilliant winners from 2020 please return their cups, nicely polished, in preparation for Feb. You can either return them to the VPA Store on Sunday mornings 10am to 12am, or to a Committee Member, Stuart at Shepherds’s Cottage Nettleden Road, Alastair at 1 Pond Lane, Hudnall or Janet at 5 Ringshall Cottages.
