The West Show

Each successive year the West Show gets better and better. This year was a gem. Well organised, lovely weather and loads to see.

Sprawling across a couple of acres close to the heart of St Peters lies the events fields. Originally a showcase for farmers this has morphed into a much bigger concept. Its still a heartland of rural and local pleasures. From veg displays to high flying motorcycle antics. A real community event.

There was hardly a moment free with so much to see. Nobody starved with so many food outlets. Fresh caught seafood, hog roast, noodle bar, cakes and fresh brewed coffee every taste was catered for.

Babette Cole the author drew dragons and princesses for any passing child who were entraced by the immediacy and passion of her illustrations.

The kids revelled in every delight on offer. Hay bales to clamber on, clowns to entertain, every child's face reflected the glee of being let loose in a safe environment.

There was literally something for everyone. This will be an event that will stay long in the memory of anyone that attended.
