Village show to celebrate its centenary year 

 Published on: 21st February 2019   |   By: Alex Pearson   |   Category: Uncategorized

Croxley Green’s annual home and produce show will celebrate its centenary year this September. 

One year after the First World War, the show has held its competition for 100 consecutive years to celebrate the skills and passion of local people. 

Now held at Yorke Mead Primary school in Dulwich Way, the show will start at 2.30pm on September 14.

There are now more categories than ever before.

They include vegetables, flowers, fruit, plants, floral arts, baking, preserves, handicrafts, liqueurs, eggs and photography. 

One of the more hotly contested categories is the novelty classes, in particular the heaviest marrow, with the winner last year weighing over 25kg.

For children there are different age ranges as well as a potato bucket and scarecrow for primary schools and youth groups. 

Show secretary John Jowers, said: “A major change this year is in response to changing life choices. In the domestic category, for the first time, all classes are open to vegan, gluten-free and sugar-free recipes. We look forward to seeing these recipes competing with traditional recipes and hopefully winning some prizes.”

This year the Croxley Green Show is looking to find descendants of local people who donated trophies in their name to the show so they can present the trophies in September.  

If you are related to or know any one related to any of the following Croxley Green families, get in touch with John. Details are below.
