Maldon Show goes online

The “Show in a Bag” was launched today with 50 hand made show bags given out to local kids at the old Bank Corner this morning.

The family event normally held of the third Sunday of October was reluctantly cancelled, but the Committee wanted to still bring the Show to everyone so we decided to take it online. The first round of competitions began with the distribution of the bags which contained colouring competitions, bean growing challenges, Lego building and Cupcake Decorating challenges, photography competitions and much more.

Also in the bags were gifts from our generous sponsors, the Maldon & District Community Bank, and coloured pencils to encourage those budding artists.

The intershow competitions run by the Midland Group and VAS will take place later this year so now is the time to get practising your cooking and completing those entries for the craft sections. The VAS schedule can be downloaded here. The Midland Group Cookery competition will include that great favourite, the Bloke’s Chocolate Cake. We can’t wait to be able to taste your entries, fellas!

The full schedule of online events can be downloaded – SHOW IN A BAG – this includes copies of the colouring sheets for those who missed out on one of today’s giveaways.

Frances was excited to get her bag today.
