Winchcombe Country Show 2017
The traditionally hot weather now expected for an August Bank Holiday, brought out plenty of visitors to the 68th Winchcombe Country Show held in the grounds of Winchcombe Senior School and Warner’s Budgens were really proud to sponsor the show again in our second year in the town.
The show was opened in style once more led by a procession of vintages tractors, fancy dress contestants and the Happenstance Border Morris dancers, through the pretty Cotswold town.
There was a host of events throughout the afternoon including the ‘On The Edge Motorcycle Stunt Trials Team’, which featured the world’s best riders taking 15ft jumps and tricks through the air at breath taking speed.
Also new this year was the opportunity to help support the ‘Tour of Britain’ by decorating a bicycle wheel, and the bicycles will be displayed when the tour comes through Winchcombe on Saturday 9th September.
There were many prizes up for grabs throughout the day if you wanted to participate, or alternatively there were classes featuring floral displays, an abundance of entertainment, wine cookery and preserves and plenty of shopping opportunities as well.
Visitors to the Warner’s Budgens stand were treated to samples of the award winning Cotswolds Dry Gin from The Cotswolds Distillery based in Stourton, topped up with Fever-Tree tonic and slice of lime and pink grapefruit making the perfect gin and tonic! There were also mouth-watering cheeses from our local suppliers Fowlers of Earlswood and Simon Weaver Organic Brie, accompanied by Peter’s Yard Sourdough crispbreads – a marriage made in heaven!
All the products sampled are available to purchase from all Warner’s Budgens stores.
