The Royal Norfolk Show

The 26th and 27th of June found us again at The Royal Norfolk Show, once again we were pleased with how well set out our stand looked, we were even more pleased that the Judges thought along similar lines as we were awarded Reserve Champion for the Barclays Trade Stand Award. A big thank you to all the exhibitors who made this possible. We always look forward to complementing the working area adjacent to our stand and their displays of bygone farming were a real pleasure to watch, some of our Club members take part in this display. For the first time this year we took part in the pageant celebrating 100 years of the NFU and 75 years of Young Famers which took place in the Main Ring it showed farming and events through the ages, a sight worth seeing and very well presented, our thanks to all club members who took part. Finally a big thank you to all who supplied cakes and help in the tea tent. We now look forward to The Summer Show, Worstead Festival and Aylsham...

Club Dinner and Plough Sunday

This year we were entertained by The Lee Vasey Band who supplied good music, if at times a trifle loud! Our food as in previous years was excellent and our thanks go to the Hotel staff for their excellent service. We must also give big thanks to Bob for organising the whole event. Sunday 13th January took us to Norwich Cathedral to take part in their Plough Sunday celebrations, approximately 10 tractors with ploughs took part along with other ploughs inside the cathedral, age ranging from 1930 through to 2018, they made quite an impressive show as they paraded around The Close to come back to the Cathedral West Door to be blessed, a service of choral evensong The followed. Once again our thanks to the Dean and staff of Norwich Cathedral for this invitation to take part, and our thanks to everyone who has given their time to support this...

Club Season

How the year has flown by, we attended The Royal Norfolk Show in June, then on to Worstead Festival, The Summer Show at Marsham and finally the Aylsham Show. All events were well attended and as always we appreciate all the help which we receive to set up and close down, we always hope the public enjoy what we do. The Summer Show as in previous years had some interesting exhibits of which some had not been seen in Norfolk before. Aylsham Show saw our chairman Richard organising his last event for the club as he stepped down from this role. At our September club meeting at Bawburgh we presented both Richard and Ruth with a thank you gift from us...
