After lots of disruptions from covid restrictions, the society decided to go ahead with the show on Saturday August 14.

Group secretary Rozie Bradley said, “It was a big decision as to whether to hold the show this year or not, but the committee felt it was important to both exhibitors and the village. This was our 100th show in Bosham!”

Rozie said although the show was scaled down, it was “very well attended” with plenty of entries.

She said, “Both the judges and the exhibitors said they were so pleased to come as so many shows had been cancelled this year. It was a joy to watch

the children excitedly return to see if they had won a prize – the exhibitors of the future we hope.

“The general public who came to view the exhibits also enjoyed tea and cakes and a good natter.

“A big thanks to everyone who worked hard to make it the success it was.

Next year we hope it can be a much bigger affair with a raffle, craft stall and tombola.”
