A small parish affair
The full West Show is held every two years, so we’re re-charging our batteries in 2013.
If you can’t wait until the next full show, the good news is that the Association will be taking part in this year’s St Peter Parish Fete on 13 July at our showground in St Peter.
Our horticultural sub-committee will be holding a show, including:
• Schools’ vegetable wheelbarrow competition
• Vegetable basket competition
• Little Green Fingers schools’ carrot, bee and scarecrow competitions
There will also be displays and advice available from the Jersey Association of the National Vegetable Society, Jersey Rosarians and JALGA.
We’ll also be running an animal farm, including cows and calves, chickens and chicks and sheep, and we will have hay bales to play on.
St Peter’s Youth Club will also have plenty on offer and St Peter’s Primary School PTA will be serving refreshments. Fun 4 Dogs Pet Dog Display Team will also be taking part.
As a result of the rain on the first day of last year’s show, all of the fields used by the West Show Association are in the process of being cleared of woodchip and re-seeded. To allow time for the new grass to become established, it will not be possible to run a full West Show in 2014. However, we do have some exciting alternative plans, details of which will be provided in due course.
Thanks to everyone that supported us in 2012 – despite the dreadful weather!
