We urgently need help with car parking on Sat 27th and Sun 28th from 9.30am to 4.30pm. Even a couple of hours would be a great help. Please contact us if you can help.
Setup and Take-down
Most people feel that this is an important event in the village and the funds raised for local organisations (over £20,000 in 2018) is significant. The current team need more help to make the show happen; maybe you can be one who helps to ensure the success of the 2020 Show.
Please contact us if you can help.
If you have questions or would prefer to talk to someone please contact Sue and Simon (details below).

The main tasks to complete are shown below. As you can see we need a large number of volunteers at the beginning of the week. Last year we managed to get most of the heavy work out of the way by Tuesday, which was excellent. We have a couple of contingency days built in for adverse weather.
If you can just do one or two evenings, that's great, and we welcome your help.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
