THOUSANDS of visitors will flock to the Vale this weekend for a traditional village show.

The annual Badsey Flower Show, which is now in its 112th year, promises to deliver a wide range of fun, family friendly activities.

This year’s highlights include a canine agility performance by Gill Raddings Stuntdogs and Animals, who specialise in supplying animals to the television and film industry, as well as music from Warwickshire-based ukulele group Spa Strummers.

As always there will be a variety of stalls and side shows, including refreshments, and local youth group Phoenix Theatre will also be performing excerpts from its latest musical production ‘The Kids From Fame’.

Members of the public can also enter the numerous categories of show classes, many of which are available for entry by children, and range from potato decorating to the more traditional vegetable and craft competitions.

Committee member Adrian Barradell said the event "includes something for everyone”.

Organisers are still looking for some support to help with the running of the show, which takes place on Saturday (July 26) with gates opening at 1pm.

Lizzie Noyes, who is organising the team of volunteer helpers for the event, said it is still not too late to get involved.

“We are always in need of more helpers as there is so much to do,” she said. “We get so many visitors, some of whom come from all over the world so it’s important we have enough people to man all the different stalls”.

The show is at the Recreation Ground in Badsey, near Evesham. Entry costs £3 (concession available). Anyone who would like to help out on the day should call Mrs Noyes on 01386 831112.
