Show Secretary :
- with the help of other volunteers. If you can help us on the day before show-day (to set up the show), on show-day itself (to run the show), and especially at the end of show-day to clear up, please contact the Show Secretary at 01380 828579. We really do need more help to ensure the continuing success of the show.
No changes in the main 2017 schedule from 2016.
There is no Gardening Club Class because the club has closed.
Let us know if you would like us to consider amendments, additions, or deletions for next year’s show contact the Show Secretary at 01380 828579.
Entries into the above sections are on a competitive basis. Depending upon the quality of the exhibits prize certificates are conferred on a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd basis; 'Highly Commended' may occasionally be awarded at the judge's discretion.
Arrangements can be made for non-competitive displays. Please contact the Show Secretary at 01380 828579.
We are very pleased that there has been a partnership with Altfield since 2014. The company sponsors the show and in 2014 donated a new trophy,The Altfield Bowl, an engraved bronze and gilded bowl which will be awarded yearly to the exhibitor with the Best Exhibit in Show. Altfield also donated in 2014 'The Altfield Cup' which will be awarded to the exhibitor with 'Most Points in Home Produce Section'. Altfield is a Seend based business.
See more information about Altfield in a separate page.
The schedule programme and entry form is free.
Exhibitor's entries: any number of entries £2.
Children's (16 yrs and under) entries are FREE in all classes.
Completed entry forms should be delivered or posted to The Show Secretary View Rosa, High St Seend, or The Seend Community Centre, Rusty Lane, Seend. By hand only to Seend Shop & Post Office.
→ Entries must be received before noon on the Friday preceding the show.
See the 2016 entries count (as a PDF document) for each class. Surely the classes which have 2 or less entries are inviting you to enter next time and be sure of a prize certificate!
→ Please read the guidance notes, some general and some specific to certain classes, at the end of the schedule before deciding on which classes you want to enter and to be sure that your exhibit is 'as schedule'. Some of the general notes are shown below. See all the guidance notes.
• All entries should be grown or made, as relevant, by the exhibitor.
• Only one exhibit per class per exhibitor unless specifically stated otherwise.
• An exhibit must be from a single exhibitor. Where there has been cooperation in creating/producing entries they should be entered under one name only (Split the entries between the two of you!)
See the list of awards in the 2016 show in a separate page.
Altfield have donated a magnificent bronze bowl as a trophy for the exhibitor showing 'The Best Exhibit in the Show'. See below left.
Altfield have also donated a cup for the exhibitor with Most Points in Section D - Home Produce.
The Horse Show Cup for Most Points in the Show was replaced in 2013 by The Peter Fisher Cup in honour of the debt that the Show, and indeed the Community Centre and Seend, owe to Peter Fisher MBE for all his hard work in promoting the interests of our community.
The Wareham Cup is assigned to Most Points by a Lady
The Colonel Dashwood Cup is assigned to Most Points in Section E - Arts & Crafts
Recognition of the endeavours of entrants that results in Best in Sections A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H and in the Sweet Pea, Rose, Begonia, Pelargonium, Baked Products, and Home Preserve classes will be in the form of certificates.
The Challenge Cup D will be awarded to the exhibitor with Most Points in the Dahlia Classes
1st, 2nd, and 3rd winners in each class, as appropriate, will receive a worth-taking-home award slip. A Highly Commended award may be made, on merit, at the discretion of the judges in addition to or instead of any of the three main awards.
