Ilmington Show 2017
The annual Village Show was held as usual on August Bank Holiday (this year Monday 28th), on the village playing fields on the Mickleton Road.
Starting at 1.00 pm, there is a full afternoon of entertainment.  As always the dog agility demonstrations will provide fun for dogs and their owners but this year there will be Village Dog Show for everyone to enter. And children are specially catered for by puppet shows, face-painting, bouncy castles, etc.
There will be the usual range of funfair stalls – as well as rides, archery, crafts, classic car display and parade. Indulge in a range of refreshments including a pig roast, BBQ, ice cream stall, Pimms bar or tea and cake while enjoying the AD concert band. Prepare to be moved by a flypast by an aircraft from the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (Lancaster Bomber and two Spitfires booked; operations permitting on the day).
There is much more to see and enjoy including the village's annual show of flowers, fruit, vegetables, cookery and crafts with all its beautiful exhibits on display in the main marquee during the afternoon. This will open for viewing from around 2.30 pm with prize giving at 4.30 pm. The deadline for entries is Friday 25 August. They can be submitted at The Ilmington Community Shop and Café on Upper Green  6.30 and 8.00 pm or sent to Susan Brock, Daisy Cottage, Front St., Ilmington, CV36 4LA.
