Outing to Malvern Show – Saturday 28th September 2019

Our coach was nice and early and we were soon all on board and ready for our journey to Malvern.

It was an uneventful and a non-holdup journey to Malvern.  Once we had been through check-in everyone went their separate ways.  It is a huge show over a vast area.  There was something for everyone; Retail of anything to do with gardening, outdoor clothes and shoes; Nurseries, Food outlets and a Food Hall; Machinery of all types including vintage machinery, a Vintage tent where refreshments were served in china cups and saucers; they also had jive demonstrations and lessons (I  know of at least one of our members who tried this).  The RHS had a marque of show flowers at competition level.  A huge marquee housed vegetables of all different sizes and weights (several records were broken).  An old fashioned fairground  for the youngsters to explore.  A number of buildings housed a World of Animals.  In the arena a dog agility course took place as did a sheep dog demonstration, parade of livestock and machinery;  show jumping; a heavy horse competition (Hook Norton Brewery) took part in  this, and a carriage driving competition . Country Pursuits Village gave an authentic taste of country sports, demonstrations of country skills and animals.

The above is just a small synopsis of what the day covered, it would take 2 or 3 days to get round everything fully.

We spent 5 hours at the show and when the party got back to the coach with their purchases they were all ready for a sit down and restful journey home; we arrived back in Carterton at approx 4.45pm.  Thank you Janice for some of the photos. Pam
