The first weekend in August always sees the Tenbury
Countryside Show…it’s been the same for many a year. The Show has grown
steadily and is set as a must visit occasion in the Community and is definitely
a must for the local farmers and community.
Depending on the weather the farming community will attend
and catch up with friends and watch the spectacles in the Show Ring as well as the
parades of stock and machinery, the Tug of War competition and the Tractor
Pulling. Of course there are the trade stands where you have the chance to
order fuel etc at Show prices but also to catch up with suppliers and buy a few treats to take home….it’s all go but also a chance to have a drink, something
to eat and a good old chin wag . Town is generally busy in the evening as well.
It’s a shame not to make the most of the day (rain or shine!)
We now have the Tenbury 10k on the Sunday morning which departs
from the Burgage at 11.00 In it’s
second year the Burgage was full of well wishers supporting the runners who
made it look so easy. I’m sure some of the runners eclipsed 10K when warming up! Oli and Claire organise this Event and profits go towards the Love Tenbury initiative at St Mary’s Church Tenbury. There are already over 100 runners signed up for 2020. Wow!
On from that was the Burford House & Gardens Motor Show
which is in its 4th Year. 172
vehicles booked in to the Event and there was a steady flow of vehicles
arriving as spectators throughout the day.
St Mary’s Church in Burford gave it’s Glebe Land for parking
for the Motor Show and also put on an Art Exhibition in the Church. There was
some fabulous artwork and again it was an opportunity to chat with people that
you haven’t seen for a while and also to find out more about the Church from it’s
very knowledgeable parishioners and PCC members.
Well done Tenbury! What a weekend!
