The Reydon Show 2023 was brilliantly attended this year with lots of people entering across the categories and large numbers coming to see all the lovely entries.
With last year’s heatwave well behind us we had a great number of entries across the fruit and vegetable classes, though the heavy rain made some of the cut flower classes tricky!
The categories that were less weather dependent proliferated and it was amazing to see all the baked goods, art, photography and handicrafts.
The kids’ creativity was delightful and we would encourage even more children to enter the free kids’ categories next year – they can enter any arts and craft including 3D models and Lego! There will also be new kids’ cookery and gardening categories next year.
So, when you are planning you 2024 planting or embarking on some arts and crafts remember the first Saturday in August will be the Reydon Show next year.
