Hemel Hempstead Community Judges chose winners in a number of different categories

Bourne End Village Show returned this year to the delight of the Hemel Hempstead community. The judges commented that many village shows are disappearing.

The annual event, organised by members of the committee of Bourne End Village Association, at the Village Hall continues to bring the community together.  It was particularly important this year as the pandemic had kept many people apart.  Many new people have moved to the village.

Gordon Rolfe, the Chairman, said: “Missing a year because of Covid didn’t dent any of the enthusiasm for this annual event.

“There was a good turnout with exhibits ranging from flowers to tapestry. It was also a great social event bringing the Hemel Hempstead community village together.”

Judges chose winners in a number of different categories including home made arts and crafts, culinary delights, photography, a kid’s section, and garden produce.

Valerie Crawley won the overall shield again, with Maggie Cassidy coming a close second.

Gordon Rolfe won the Douglas Dean Rose bowl, while Isla Cooper won the child cup.  Isla also competed in adult categories where she won first prize for her cucumber.
