Summer Show in Weighton

Residents are being invited to enter their cakes, vegetables, artwork and much more at a Summer Show being held by the Market Weighton branch of the Royal British Legion on 3 August.

The show, at Market Weighton Social Club on Southgate, will feature all the usual cake and vegetable categories, plus children’s art, writing and short story categories and a cooking category.

Anyone wishing to enter produce in the show can obtain a list of categories by calling Peter Hastings, president of the Legion’s Market Weighton branch, on 01430 860873.

Entries, which need to be submitted between 9am and 11am on the day, can be viewed from 1.30pm. The bar and refreshments will also be available from 1.30pm. Trophies for category winners will be presented at 1.45pm.

Produce will be auctioned off at 2pm to raise funds for the Legion.

Last year more than £1,300 was raised for the branch funds which are used for local welfare cases.

Mr Hastings said: “It’s going to be a fun event for people of all ages.

“We’re hoping to raise as much as last year.”

Everyone is welcome. Entry is free.
