These are very important to us – we must keep the younger generation involved in the show, and this was one of the reasons we wanted to develop an alternative to the live show. With lockdown and no school until September for most young people we thought they could be encouraged to utilise their skills and creative talents to help us showcase their abilities.
CHAMPION OF SECTION is awarded to C1-10 – A photograph of a tractor at work
Congratulations to Joseph Booth (age 9)
“This photograph captures the spirit and purpose of the Wensleydale Show, a showcase of the farming community. The Wensleydale show is beloved by visitors from far and wide and is missed by the many show supporters in the current pandemic. The photograph reminds us that farming, with its key workers, continues and allows us to remember shows past and look forward to the shows of the future.” (Judge Margaret Newcombe)
Hoping the young photographers have time to catch a picture of their favourite tractor working, capturing the farming community at work.
A class unique to 2020 – home schooling, missing meeting friends, helping at home, not able to visit granny, have sleep overs, these stories should be saved to remind us of this episode in history.
During lockdown many have learned new baking skills sometimes out of necessity when it looked like the supermarket shelves may be emptying. Now it’s the young people`s turn to show their skills at baking – no limits here, from a quiche to a gateaux.
This is the young people’s chance to turn that piece of junk into a useful or decorative heirloom.
Painting stones is a popular craze – and there is plenty of the raw material in Wensleydale , here is the chance for the young people to show their imagination and creative flair to produce their best.
A little bit about Brymor Ice Cream…
Situated just outside Masham at High Jervaulx Farm, Brymor Ice Cream remains the only producer in Yorkshire making ice cream with milk from its own herd of pedigree Guernsey cows. All of Brymor’s ice cream is made by hand at the farm with the calves and young stock from the herd on public view, who will one day produce the milk Brymor use for the ice cream.
The world famous ice cream parlour is open seven days a week and offers something for all the family with indoor and outdoor play areas; an indoor play barn; go karts; a dog exercise and dog friendly area; plus events throughout the year.
