POST SHOW REPORT FROM OUR PRESIDENT

Record crowds flocked to the 157th Egham Royal Show last weekend, when warm weather and live coverage from BBC Surrey helped to generate a great atmosphere on the Showground at Whitehall Lane in Egham.

The highlight of the first day was the re-appearance of the 8 Magna Carta Giants of Liberty, which had last been seen entertaining Her Majesty The Queen at Runnymede on 15 June, on the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta.

The Giants had been made by local schoolchildren, including pupils from Magna Carta School, in 2014, and they marched around the Main Arena operated by local children to a historical commentary prepared by Surrey County Council

The Show was opened on Saturday morning by the Mayor of Runnymede, Cllr Derek Cotty, and the Mayoress, Susan Jones, who went on to tour the Showground in a vintage Bentley, and then to meet and greet the stallholders, traders and sponsors of the Show.

The climax of Saturday was a Barn Dance run by Egham Residents Association, held in the Community Marquee and attended by 160 people.

The weather stayed dry on Sunday, when the crowd favourite was a stunning motor bike display put on by the Squibb Freestyle Stunt Team. The huge aerial jumps had the audience spellbound.

Other entertainments over the weekend included the very popular Bob Hogg's Sheepdog Display, the Golden Eagle Archers, the First Class Falconry Display and the ever popular vintage cars.

Show President Nick Wood-Dow said he was delighted with the results of the two day Show. He thanked all of the volunteers on the Show Committee for their dedication and hard work during the past year.

He thanked the main sponsors of the Show, including Crest Nicholson, HCL, Procter and Gamble, Menzies Accountants, Future Electronics, Gemini Cars, Royal Holloway University of London, Waitrose, SITA and Surrey County Councillor for Virginia Water Marisa Heath.

Planning for the 158th Show in August 2016 begins at the next Committee meeting in late September.

POST SHOW REPORT - VINTAGE AND CLASSIC CARS

The vintage and classic vehicle section had 200 entrants over the weekend. On display were interesting and unusual cars, motorcycles and historic commercials – we also had a small selection of custom cars too.

The entries ranged from a British built 1927 Austin 7 to an American built 1932 Hupmobile that the public choose as their best in show Saturday. A 1960's Chevrolet Impala was chosen by the public as best in show Sunday. Interesting to see the public’s choice being American produced cars. All of the vehicles were presented to a very high standard so my team of judges had to work really hard deciding on the winners.

On both days of the show the vehicles paraded around the main ring where a commentary was given and prizes handed out to the winners.

Each entrant also received a commemorative brass plaque - these were kindly sponsored by Gemini Taxis of Egham. Also displaying in the vintage and classic vehicle section were traders selling auto-jumble and specialist model cars.
