Preparations underway for Leek Show
Preparations are well underway for the Leek show 2021 pencilled in for July 31st the show is set to be an event for the entire family.
Schedules are busy being prepared for the regular competitions which include livestock, poultry, dogs, horses and produce. “We intend all sections to give a chance for youngsters to have a go at competitions and to get a foot on the showing ladder” remarked Eddie Sims, Show Chairman.
“To that end there are classes for young handlers of Cattle and Sheep, junior classes in the horse show and fun Dog show. Youngsters can enter the produce competitions with vegetables and flowers they are growing in their gardens and exhibit their handicraft in the Homecrafts section and floral art tent.”
The more energetic can enter the Tug of War organised by the Young Farmers, who will have their own display area and relax after to the strains of a Jazz Band before visiting the trade and craft stands.
A vintage funfair will also be available on the day.
The show is set to take place on the last Saturday of July at the usual venue of Birchall playing fields.
