What a fantastic day we had for the 2014 Knaphill Village Show!
So many happy, smiling faces – a real pleasure to see – descended on Mizens Railway in Barrs Lane that we’re still counting the numbers. Saturday 19th proved one thing – community events are just superb and we look forward to putting on many more shows over the years.
A full set off bookings ensured a huge variety in attractions, stalls, food and entertainment and this one could just be the best ever!
But what of that horrible weather forecast stating rain, rain, rain? Not a drop! In fact there were quite a few pink faces going about as the heat was turned up to ‘full’ and the sun came blistering through the clouds. Such a wonderful turn of events for a show that has had mixed weather over the years.
The new music tent proved very popular and the bands got many feet moving about to the tunes throughout the afternoon.
Of course we didn’t have the horticultural event this year which raised a few voices of disappointment; apologies for this but it was unavoidable. Next year it may return.
What did everyone think of this years special guest, Winstan Churchill? I thought he certainly looked that part and the looks on peoples faces seem to have confirmed that he was a great choice for the day.
As always, we would like to hear your feedback on the day so that we can try to introduce your suggestions. All your comments can either be entered below or emailed to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org‘. This post will also be on the Knaphill Show website at http://www.knaphillshow.org.
For everyone involved it is quite the effort to put on the annual show and the dedication the volunteers put in is admirable in giving freely of their time and efforts for the sole benefit of the Knaphill community. I’d like to say a huge well done and congratulations to the show committee and the day volunteers – you have done a bang up job!
