In aid of Seamer Memorial Hall Funds



The revival of Seamer produce show has proved to be a huge success. It is eight years since the last Seamer Show and Seamer Village Hall committee members decided to re-introduce the produce section as a show in the village hall.

There were more than two hundred and fifty entries in classes for flowers and vegetables to paintings and the largest weed. The quality of the exhibits was extremely high and the show organiser, Margaret Smith, was delighted with the number of people that had entered and making the hall look magnificent for visitors to see.

On a glorious summer afternoon the children enjoyed sports on the green and everyone was asked to judge the five scarecrows taking up residence in the Methodist church garden, with Tigger the winner.

The home made refreshments and tombola were very popular and more than £200 has been raised for the village hall funds.
