The popular annual show, which will take place on Saturday 31 August, is open to all residents of Topcliffe and Asenby, and individuals who grow produce on allotments within the boundaries of our two villages.
There’ll be 47 horticultural classes, 16 baking/preserves classes, 3 floral classes, 10 hobbies classes and 5 classes just for children to enter. This year only one entry can be placed in each category. As last year, there’ll be two trophies in the horticultural section, one for the person with the most points overall and another for the person with most "firsts". Entries must be registered at the village hall between 9 and 11.30am on the day. Entry fee of 50p per adult exhibit and 25p per child exhibit. Judging between 12 noon and 2pm. Public viewing between 2 and 3.30pm. Raffle draw and presentation of trophies at 3pm. The full list of rules, categories and classes are available on both village websites or from Produce Show Secretary Judith Lowe (577911).
The regular Monday afternoon art class is back at the Village Hall…and hoping existing and new members will come along. The class, which caters for complete beginners through to those with more experience, is led by artists Vivien and Barry Wilton-Middlemass. Everyone has a free first lesson.
This annual event is normally held in May but this year is being staged later in the year – 14 September. All proceeds go to St Columba’s Church Funds. As usual, the auctioneer will be Asenby resident John Phillips. Viewing on the day will be 12 noon to 2pm with the sale commencing promptly at 2pm. The organisers hope locals will save and collect any items that might be suitable for the auction – furniture, books, bric-a-brac and even antiques! (but no TV sets, computers, clothes, bedding or used soft toys thanks). Items for the sale should be delivered to the Village Hall between 8 and 11am on the day. Limited storage might be available if items cannot be held until the sale. Contact John on 01845 577034.
This Thirsk-based group of musicians play a whole range of music from Blues and Country through to a variety of popular songs. They have all played in other formats to sell-out audiences over the last few years. Audiences have described them as “a nod to bluegrass and western swing, amazingly entertaining’ and ‘foot-tappingly sensational”. Bring your own drinks and nibbles. Tickets £5 from Judith Lowe (577911) or Doug Allan (578526).
