AN ANNUAL show returned to Selattyn on the weekend after its absence last year.

The 14th Selattyn Produce and Craft Show was held at the church and the Cross Keys pub in the village.

Last year, the show was unable to go ahead with no one fulfilling the role of secretary.

On Saturday however it returned with more than 300 entries ranging from flower displays, crafts, photography and poetry.

Chairman of the show, Tim Kirk, was pleased to see the range of entries on show.

“This is very much a village affair,” he said.

“We have around 300 entries this year with flowers, vegetables and craft among those.

“There is a lot of great stuff on show here today with lots of different shapes and sizes of entries.

“We have entries from the schoolchildren as well – it’s great to see the children get involved with the show.”

This year’s secretary, Tricia West-Wynn, highlighted the community feel of the event and the village as a whole.

She said: “The school, church and pub are intrinsic to our village. It’s very much a community-based area.

“There’s only around 60 to 80 people living in the village, so days like this really show the togetherness of everyone here.

“It’s purely an event for the people here, we don’t host it for money.

“All we need is enough money to be self-funding so it can happen again next year.

“The council give us a grant which we are very grateful for.”
