Ingram Show 2017

It's impossible to talk about the show without talking about the weather! Unfortunately the rain returned, but spirits were high and lots of people turned out to enter the events and watch the fun:-

 

Before the day began...

Start of day     All quiet in the tea room

 

In the Horticultural and Industrial Tent 

The tables in the marquee were groaning with cakes, jam, produce, vegetables, flowers and craft work. 

Just a few of the baking entries      Vegetables set up for judging      Cabbage prizewinner  

Record number of stick entries 

Handicrafts  Some of the entries in the children's classes

Flower entries with children's inthe background

             

        Entertainment 

Providing colour on the field, Rag Bag Morris, who braved the slippery conditions to entertain with traditional dancing and music...

Our "old" friends "Heads on the Block" took shelter with Sue, the face painter in the tent...

...and Jamie Woods brought along his Swiss Valais blacknose ewe, who also took shelter in the marquee. You can just see the cutest lamb snuggling up behind her.
