This event, held at the Village Hall, could not have been staged without the Brentor Village Show Organisers, an independent group who put in so much work every year towards its organisation. In recent years there has been no Village Show, but from 2018 it is being replaced by a new event, the Brentor Summer Fayre. Click here to go to the Summer Fayre page.
We should also not forget the many volunteers who ran the stalls, stewarded for the judges, made cakes, washed up and generally assisted in so many ways.
The show included a produce section, baking, photography and art and crafts. There were often stalls, music and other activities.
Profit from the show, which usually amounted to some £500, was used to benefit the village hall and playing field.
Thank you to everyone in the village and beyond for attending the show and for your generosity – it made all the effort worthwhile. The village show organizers reluctantly decided not to run the Brentor Village Show in 2014. Several members of the group had been involved with the show for 8 years and really wanted a break and for others to take on their role. It was a difficult decision to make as the team knows how much the show was enjoyed.
