Willersey Village Amateur Horticultural and Craft Show 2017

Our “Horticultural and Craft Show” 2017 was held in the Village Hall
on August 28th Bank Holiday Monday (2pm to 5pm)
and many other separate activities took place in Willersey during the afternoon.


Fortunately the UK experienced the hottest late August bank holiday Monday on record, with dry and fine weather with light winds.
Prize winners for the Show and the Scarecrow competition were announced at 3:00pm in the Village Hall on the Show Day.


The Eric Beadle Cup for the best total exhibits at the Show was won by Peter Bond
The runner up was Jane Ewers and third was Julia Burrows.

Jane and Peter Ewers won the Scarecrow competition prize.

Micheal Hardman won the Men Only Sticky Ginger Cake competition.
