MONTGOMERY SHOW AS MARVELLOUS AS EVER
Once again Montgomery showed everyone a fantastic fun packed weekend . Our thanks goes to everyone involved – organisers,exhibitors and visitors alike. Without you none of this would be possible
The Friday night race ( probably one of the most scenic in the country) organised by The Maldwyn Harriers was very well attended by intrepid runners and spectators greeting them in Broad St. with welcome refreshments.The winner was Tim Davies from The Maldwyn Harriers.The winner of the under 15’s Fun Run was Deiniol Owen.
Despite rain and wind the show was well attended and enjoyed by all ages. A Carnival procession led by the Show Presidents Mr and Mrs Bill and Sally Orme and the Carnival Queen Hannah Rowland proceeded from Broad St to the showground on Lymore Meadow which was the start of a lovely afternoon of good old fashioned entertainment.
The marquee was well set out with an abundance of entries on most sections and Knighton Silver Band performed while everyone checked out the prizewinners. and scrutinised the ever popular potato in a bucket competition
Cup winners this year were the Madge Richards Salver President’s Choice won by Huw Handel for his Dinasaur Collage . The Harry Pennie Salver for most points went to Esmond Stanyer. The Wardholm Family Trophy went to the Stephenson Family the Floral Art overall winner was Jan Lawerance the Montgomery flower club best in show was Wendy Lamb and Gabriella Ghirotto won the best cake in the show
There was entertainment for all including a stunt team who managed some daring balancing acts in the wind, Ronnie Crackers Magic Show, exotic spiders and reptile display ,Climbing walls Stalls and Trade stands, including the ever popular Taste Montgomery
There was an even more impressive collection of vintage vehicles this year, the tank being a particular favourite and for the first time we had the fabulous miniature railway which offered rides around the edge of the field.
As usual the dog show was well attended with strong competition. The Jack Corfield cup went to Pat Evans with Lexi
Sunday Lunch in the marquee was a real treat where people could relax, chat and enjoy a delicious meal.
None of this could have happened without the hard work of the Show Committee who our President Bill described as Team Montgomery who work throughout the year to fundraise. Special thanks to John Dickenson Acting Chairman ,and Mary Bunner The Secretary
