The Town Show, for all ages, displaying an extensive range of ingenuity and talents across a wide range of classes
The 4th Godmanchester Town Show was held at St Mary’s Church on the 15th September. It was a good weather day following on one of the hottest summers we have had for many years.It was thought that the hot weather may have an effect on the Flower and Vegetable entries but somehow the growers had managed to overcome this and we had a magnificent display of both and some of the biggest onions I have ever seen.All of the categories were well attended and the children’s entries were again fantastic with St Anne’s School entering over 200 items.We had everything from beautiful photographs to flower arrangements which incorporated items which had been dug up on an allotment.The good people of Godmanchester had again come up trumps and we had many visitors come to see the entries and even one who entertained us with Guitar and Song.The ladies who supplied the refreshments and a raffle with some great prizes all helped to make the day very enjoyable.The day ended with our Mayor Sarah Conboy awarding the cups to the winners of each category and a good day was had by all.We look forward to next year and many more years to come.Thank you all,Mike Grice and Team.
In the meantime, here are some of the comments received after the 2018 Town Show.“Dear Mike, It was a very nice event; thank you all for organizing it and for being so welcoming; hope to see you again next year.All the best wishesCristina.”“Thank you,I hope to return next year with more entries.

We had a fantastic day and Ena was so pleased with her first and second places.Her picture has taken pride of place in her bedroom (even though the foliage from our garden is fast dying!).I refer to my jam as 'award winning'!!Looking forward to next year. Of course, I will donate a prize again at the time.Very well done to you and to all of the organisers. I hope to be able to help out with some of these events once my girls are a little more 'self-sufficient'!
