Village Show

Askham, Helton and District Village Show

was held on Saturday 4th September 2021  at Askham Community Centre

Schedule 2021 schedule – Final

Askham and Helton Village Show held on Saturday 4th September 2021 was back to its normal format this year, in the village hall. It was lovely to see a real community event back in the village. There were lots of entries especially in the Vegetable section – everyone has taken to growing their own this year and the flower section bought the lovely smell of sweet peas into the room.  The baking section was also well supported with delicious loaves of bread and cakes and there were plenty of jams and preserves too. The Art and Craft section showed what talented local people we have. The pictures in any media included a portrait constructed entirely of small lego pieces, and the winner of textile craft was a teapot cover with farmer, sheepdog and sheep.

Afternoon teas were served in the garden followed by the Prizegiving. Winners for each section were awarded prizes and trophies presented by Charles Lowther.

Best in Show winner was awarded to Jenney Peachey for her beautiful handmade bunting showing local landmarks on each flag. The Best Young Person award went to Olivia Das for a Tree made from recycled plastic.

The whole event could not be run without a large team of volunteers who help throughout the day, stewards, judges and local businesses who sponsor classes.

Proceeds from the show will be given to Askham Village Hall and Swimming Pool.
