ORGANISERS of the Latchley, Chilsworthy and Coxpark Show reported a bumper year after people flocked in their droves to the event on July 30 to enjoy a local show at its best.

The LCCP returned to Chilsworthy after a break of two years due to covid with all the popular attractions from the dog show to the horse classes, flower and vegetable show, arts and crafts activities and a special Viking and Saxon reenactment.

Chairman of the show committee Chris Harris said it was a wonderful day with a really good turnout.

‘Everyone is glad to see the show back,’ she said. ‘It’s a lot of hard work to put the show together and I would like to thank everyone who has helped. We would now love to get some new helpers and committee members to keep the show running into the future.’

Local rector Rev Chris Painter said he had been coming to the show for many years and it was amazing: ‘This event brings the whole community together but today we have also seen people coming from further afield too. It showcases all the local talent and we have a lot of it in this parish.’
