Wilmslow Show 2018 – hot, hot, hot!


Soaring temperatures on the hottest day of the year so far did not stop hundreds from flocking to the annual Wilmslow Show over the weekend.

The event, on Sunday 8th July, boasted a variety of performances in the main arena, including those from: Sylk Dance Academy, a WW1 cavalry display, Jema Leopold mini Shetland pony display, Sirens Sound Choir, The Sound Party, Uke Gotta Be Jokin’ and Lost In The Mist.

Tatton MP Esther McVey also attended the 106th outing of show and, together with show chairman Angela McPake, judged the scarecrow competition on behalf of the Rotary Club of Wilmslow Dean.

The Post Office’s entry Postman Pat secured first place, wit the school prize won by Gorsey Bank Primary School.

Ms McVey said: “A great time was had by all. It is an amazing community event and it was lovely to meet new people and see familiar faces too.”

Other attractions on the day included Handforth Model Engineering, Knutsford and Wilmslow First Responders as well as zorb football and the usual craft and horticultural marquees.

Esther also presented prizes on behalf Alderley Edge and Wilmslow Horticultural and Rose Society and the Macclesfield and East Cheshire Branch of the British Cactus and Succulent Society.

The heat this year meant that not all of the animal acts were able to perform and organisers rearranged the set up to ensure the animals that were exhibiting were placed in the shade.
