Peopleton Autumn Show 2021

The Peopleton Autumn Show was held at the Village Hall and adjacent playing fields on the 4th of September this year. It was a beautiful day and over two thousand people attended the show which was a record.
The show included over 200 classic cars, two steam engines, four fire engines, including a Green Goddess , numerous static steam engines and a number of WW2 army vehicles . There were five winners from different categories who gave a lap of honour to the crowd .
Competitions for best locally produced vegetables, flowers, cakes, jams, fruit, paintings and photos were held in one large marquee. Numerous stalls run by Peopleton villagers and others ranged from  raffle, tombola, veg sales, books, bric-à-brac, children’s toys, cakes, jewelry, local produced Peopleton cider, Peopleton post office and store, greeting cards, gifts, walking sticks, art club, honey bee display etc. all did a roaring trade and were enjoyed by the visitors.
Another large marquee housed the well stocked bar and stage for the various music groups, including the entertaining Worcester Ukulele band.
The music continued all day and was much to the delight of many visitors sitting listening and sampling local drinks from the bar. More than one hundred, full English breakfasts were sold in the morning followed in the afternoon by tea and cakes. Peopleton cricket club manfully sold  hot dogs and burgers to many of the hungry visitors.
Activities were continuous in the arena/ring and ranged from displays by Peopleton ladies Zumba club, Pershore junior rugby section, dog training and handling plus well-organised children’s games and competitions, even a children’s tug-of-war,  plus the full traditional ladie’s and men’s tug of war competitions.  Peopleton’s own pub, the Crown came out triumphant. Two very large bouncy castles entertained the children.
The show was truly a day for all ages and capabilities to enjoy what is a truly quintessential experience. The show was in its 10th year and the profits go to support village amenities and causes, all essential in maintaining our unique village’s life and environment.
Next year we will be making changes, including expanding on the food available,  more children’s amusements plus other exciting possibilities.
A huge Thankyou goes to the show committee who do so much, plus the 80 or so local volunteers giving time and effort into creating a memorable show and getting everyone out of those Covid blues
