Village Show 2017

Austwick Village Show 2017

This has been a difficult year for Austwick gardeners, with very little sunshine and lots of rain. Despite this, Austwick’s Annual Flower and Handicraft Show was an overwhelming success, even though the number of entries was down, the standard of the fruit, flower and vegetable exhibits was exceptional. It was especially pleasing to see the number of children’s exhibits increasing and once again, it was particularly encouraging to see new exhibitors and new faces winning classes and trophies. The judges were impressed with the standard of the exhibits and visitors were not disappointed by the items on show.
