Chale Show brings in the crowds

THERE were more than 1,500 entries in this year’s Chale Show, the Isle of Wight’s biggest horticultural show, which was held at the weekend.

But it was not just the fierce competition in the show tents that attracted the crowds, with displays of bike stunts, vintage tractors and military vehicles, falconry and magic, clown shows and live music, also pulling in the visitors.

Show manager Andrew Woodford said: "The show is a family event, with something for everyone. When you have a family life can be a struggle and that's why we don't ask people to pay for the kids. They can come in and there's lots to do.

"We're also run 100 per cent by volunteers. People give up their time and I must say thank you to all of them."

For a full report, including pictures and results, please see the Isle of Wight County Press, on Friday, August 8.
