Here’s the latest update from the show committee.
We hope you are going to enter one of our regular competitions.
Schedules are available for the Horticultural Show via Facebook, the St Ewe Parish website (downloadable under the Competition heading on the St-ewe-parish.co,uk webpage), or from committee members. There are classes to suit everyone. You need to put in an entry form so that we can get your exhibitors cards ready but you can pay Sandi and Richard the entry fee when you bring your exhibit.
The children’s art competition subject this year is “Farm Animals”. It’s open to children of all the local parishes of primary school age and your entries will be displayed in the Children’s Marquee. Please note that children that attend Gorran School will be doing their paintings within school so will automatically be entered. All other entries can also be dropped off at Gorran School or Lobb’s Farm Shop. Put your name, age and contact details on the back.
The Crown Inn Tug of War team has dominated the competition for the last few years. Surely they can be defeated? Teams of 8 where are you? No formal entry – just come on the day and let us know.
Bookings are coming in for trade stalls both in the marquee and outside. There’s still room and time for more, so email with your details if you have not already done so and Emma will send you an application pack.
All the favourite exhibitors and arena events are booked with new ones in the pipeline. Fancy a go on a climbing wall, trying your hand at archery, playing the hand bells – just a taste of things planned. Keep an eye on Facebook nearer the event.
We’re always keen to host new exhibitors and would be especially interested in rural crafts, vintage farm machinery and classic vehicles. We know it’s the Stithians Steam Fair as well but is anyone able to exhibit some steam power?! Drop us an email or ring John on 01726 843947.
As well as the ever popular ‘bacon butties’, yummy home bakes and ‘proper job’ tea and coffee available from early on, our catering team are planning new lunch and snack ideas. Of course real local ales and Pimzzz will be in abundance.
See you on the 19th!

2018 Schedule is now downloadable under the Competitions heading.
DATE FOR YOUR DIARY
Sunday 19th August 2018 – St Ewe Country Fair
10.00am – 5.00pm at St Ewe Village Hall and Field.
Planning is now beginning for this year’s fair and we thought everyone might like to know a few early details regarding contact and information.
Once again money raised will be donated to local charities and good causes as this has proved a very positive initiative over the last few years. It’s also good to support groups who in turn get involved with the fair. If you know of any organisations that would benefit please let us know.
We intend that many of the regular contributors to our traditional event will once again be involved, however, if you have a good idea please share it with us.
We will publish updates on both Facebook and the St Ewe Parish website but if you wish to contact us direct please use our dedicated email address below or call John Dickinson on 01726 843947.
We have a ‘craft’ marquee and outside trade space. If you wish to have a stall at the event, please email your contact details and a brief description of your product and our co-ordinator Emma will get back to you with more details. Standard stalls cost £20, there may be a higher charge in some cases. If you represent a charity or can contribute an activity we usually waive charges so please enquire. Likewise, as the fair is a fundraiser we do not allow other raffles, draws etc.
It will be possible to enter the fun dog show, horticultural classes and other competitions online as well as at the event. Forms will be available nearer the time.
For those keen gardeners who are ordering their seeds early, classes will be the same as last year and the new schedule should be out in June! Photographers might like to know that this years classes are as follows – so get snapping early:
- Single Blooms
- Sporting Scene
- Black & White
- Whatever the Weather
- Coastal Scene
- A Cornish Character (and we know there are plenty of those around)
The children’s photographic theme is a ‘Selfie’ – that could be fun!
We look forward to seeing you in August – more news soon.
