It will come as a surprise to no-one that due to the current COVID 19 situation with its restrictions and regulations, we are cancelling the Village Show in August. Obviously, we are very disappointed, as back in March, we had hoped that the show might go ahead.
As for anything happening at all this year, that seems more unlikely as easing of lockdown is going to be a very gradual process. It seems, therefore, that we will almost certainly have to wait until next year before we can all enjoy another show. The good news is it gives people more time to practise for the classes they were going to enter and the committee the opportunity to plan for the best show yet!
The class Oakley’s Best Allotment will be judged in July as planned – so watch this space for photos of the winning plots.

Special note about bobby buddy crochet pattern:
- This pattern uses US crochet terms so SC in this pattern = DC in UK terminology
- The pattern suggests a 6mm hook, this is for a thick yarn such as aran. If you use something thinner ie DK use a smaller hook, a stuffed animal should have tight stitches so the stuffing does not show through, adjust your hook size to suit.
Update April 2020:
So, here it is, the schedule for the Oakley Village Show, 2020 on www.ocaoakley.org.uk – Village Show page.
Whether or not the show goes ahead, we thought we’d publish the schedule anyway so that we can all have fun growing our veg, doing our craft, making our cakes or whatever grabs our imagination. It’s all good practice and even if we don’t get to show others how to do it (or in my case, show how not to do it!), we can enjoy having a goal and a focus while we stay at home.
So, keep well, stay safe and get cracking!
PS We have not had the schedule printed at this stage, so perhaps if you know anyone who won’t be able to access it online you could print off what they need? Thank You!
