Still going strong after 128 years, the Sturton and Stow Agricultural and Horticultural Association’s annual show will be held on Saturday, October 3 at Sturton-by-Stow Primary School.

“The show is so much a part of the community with different generations of families taking part, but also new people coming to live in Sturton and Stow getting involved and becoming very much part of village life.,” said Tony Scawthon, association chairman

“I am proud to have been chairman of the association for the last few years.

“We have many traditional classes, but we also like to ring the changes.

“We also have classes this year for wine and cordials, which are back by popular demand.

“As well as the usual baked goods, we have show recipes each year.

“This year they are bakewell tart and, for 16-and-unders, sausage rolls. “

There will also be a parade of classic vehicles, archery, birds of prey local organisations and craft stalls as well as a large range of exhibits.

Refreshments will be provided by the local youth club.

There will also an auction of produce after the prize-giving where some great bargains can be had.

“We welcome locals and also visitors from further afield,” continued Mr Scawthon.

“If you have never been, do come along and have a great day out visiting the ploughing match at Gate Burton in the morning and coming along to the show in the afternoon “

The show is open from 1.30-4.30pm on the day.

Admission is 50p minimum donation and 30p for children.
