The rain came but so did the people. Despite a damp day on
August Bank Holiday Monday, some 3000 people attended the ever
popular Emsworth Show.
The Show, opened by Cllr Leah Turner, the Mayor of Havant,
features one of the best horticultural shows in Hampshire. We had
marching bands, wildlife displays and a fun dog show to name but
a few, and lots of stalls for visitors to enjoy. Over 1,300 tickets
were sold for a prize draw featuring fabulous prizes from local
businesses, artists and friends of the Show.
The Show Chairman, Graham Steel, said 'Emsworth Horticultural
Society, supported by 200 fantastic volunteers, were proud to put
on such a great community show in tough conditions'. Jan Butler,
the Show secretary, added 'competition in the Horticultural
marquee was of a high standard, including lots of entries from
children, which is great for the future of Horticulture'.
