Villagers brave weather to enjoy annual Bramhope Show
Winners in the adult classes at Bramhope Show included Mrs Christine Smith – Floral Arrangements Beauty without flowers
Villagers braved the wind and rain to enjoy the attractions at Bramhope Show.
Despite the bad weather visitors turned out in force to the event which featured a wide range of exhibits as well as beer from the Wharfebank Brewery, the show’s first ever barbecue, and refreshments served by volunteers from Bramhope Methodist Church.
Secretary to the show committee Helen Smith said: “The Bramhope Show took place on a very wet and windy Sunday afternoon and so the organising committee were delighted that so many local residents turned out to show their support. Thank you one and all for coming and supporting this village event which raises funds towards the upkeep of the village hall.”
She added: “Unfortunately the poor weather meant that some of our new attractions, such as the bouncy castle, had to be cancelled but plans are already afoot for next year. Keep your fingers crossed for better weather.”
The area’s MP Greg Mulholland, who was at the event, said: “It was great to see the wonderful community spirit in Bramhope and it was a great community occasion despite the weather.
“A particularly big thanks must go to the organisers and volunteers who ensured that the show took place and was enjoyed by the many people who turned out.”
