Yes, it's getting to that time of year again when we start serious planning for this year's Tempsford Show which is on Saturday September 7th from 2.00 to 5.30pm.
This year, the show will be bigger and better than ever with a Fun Dog Show and a Children's Fancy Dress competition as brand new events. The theme for the Children's Fancy Dress Competition will be 'A Character from a Book' and prizes will be given for under 7s and 7-12s. Watch this space for more details of the Dog Show where there will also be competitions to enter.
We will also have most of the usual attractions including a bouncy castle, coconut shy, Knott's Farm Shop, craft stalls, tractors and vintage cars, and a bar. Our very popular tea, coffee and home made cakes will be available for those who want a relaxing sit down during the event.
There will be tombola and our usual grand raffle with top prizes including a Barbecue, a Wine & Spirit Collection in a Hamper and National Garden Vouchers as well as many others. Raffle tickets will be sold around the village before the event but will also be available on the day.
The Tempsford Museum & Archive will be open. Come along and see the splendid collection of artifacts and documents.
As ever, the main focus of the event will be the competition classes which are shown in detail below. Don't forget that entries, apart from one or two categories, are open to all-comers so please encourage your friends from outside the village to enter their produce too.
