Still going strong even after 130 years, the Sturton and Stow Agricultural and Horticultural Association’s 130th Show will be held on Saturday 7th October at Sturton by Stow Primary School.

Rebecca Andrews, secretary of the association, said: “I am proud to have been secretary of the association for the last few years. The show is so much a part of the community with different generations of families taking part, but also new people coming to live in Sturton and Stow getting involved and becoming very much part of village life.

“It is an amazing achievement to have reached our 130th anniversary and to mark the occasion a book is being compiled on the history of the show and it will be on sale on 7th October.

“We welcome locals and also visitors from further afield. If you have never been, do come along and have a great day out visiting the ploughing match in the morning and coming along to the show in the afternoon.”

Admission to the show is 50p minimum donation, 30p for children and the venue is Sturton School, School Lane, Sturton by Stow LN1 2BY. The show is open from 1.30pm to 4.30pm on Saturday 7th October.

Signing up night is from 7.00pm to 9.00pm on Wednesday 4th October at Sturton Village Hall or via the blog or by post to the Secretary (details on the schedule available at Sturton Stores or on the blog).
