Cheshire Show 2015

A Show To Remember
23rd & 24th June 2015

The marquee looked fantastic. Decorated with so many beautifully made banners and bunting – someone estimated 7 miles of bunting! – it really had the Wow factor. The weather was kind, couldn’t have been better if we’d been able to book it in advance. We had a record number of entries and all exhibits were of a very high standard, especially in Class 10, ‘WI Showcase’. The many visitors, including our special guest HRH the Countess of Wessex, have been most generous with their compliments.

So, full marks and thanks to all the different teams and individuals who played a part in making everything happen – all the members who made the banners and bunting; those involved in staging, admin, office, transport, publicity; team leaders; chief stewards; exhibition, general, raffle, judges’, refreshments, fast food, hospitality, and car parking stewards; till operators; calligraphers; flower arrangers; demonstrators; pianists; all Federation staff and sub-committee members; cake-bakers; exhibitors; judges; trophy donors and presenters; WI Husbands; Country Markets; cherry-picker guys, and the spur-of-the moment volunteers who moved the piano. And, of course, special thanks to the Agricultural Society, for inviting CFWI to the Cheshire County Show once again.

You are all stars!!

It’s been a perfect celebration of the WI’s centenary – here’s to next year.

The Wonderful Centenary Banners

All the WIs who made a banner detailing the year of their formation could see them on display in the marquee.  They were a truly wonderful display together with all the Bunting made by the members of the individual WIs.
