A County fair

The next day, we thought it would be fun to go to the Mid Devon County Show. The kids had a great time, and the grown-ups did too. There is always so much to see at these agricultural shows- from the animals, to the craft and the food on offer. The city folk got a glimpse at rural life they way it is now and the way it has been for ages.

The judging at the livestock events is tight and strict, but not a patch on the judging in the WI tent. Decorated scenes on a theme of ‘An English summer event’ were filled with crafts, embroidery, home-made jam, painted scenery and hand-stitched teddies to name but a few. It was a dazzling and crazy array of craft and very tempting to join in.
