SWANCARE Bent­ley Park res­i­dents will have a chance to show off their tal­ents as part of an ex­hi­bi­tion.

Arts, crafts, cakes, jams and pre­serves are just some of the items on show at the Bent­ley Park Show on Oc­to­ber 29.

Com­mit­tee mem­ber San­dra Dale said the show was an in­cen­tive to cre­ate art, bake cakes or ex­plore any of their in­ter­ests.

“We are ex­pect­ing more than 400 en­tries in this year’s show, we had about 550 last year but that was spe­cial be­cause it was the 10th an­niver­sary of the show,” she said.

“We have a vi­brant com­mu­nity here and the ma­jor­ity of the res­i­dents turn up on the day.

“It helps the res­i­dents ex­tend their in­ter­ests and gives them an op­por­tu­nity to put the items up for sale.”

Mrs Dale said tro­phies and prizes were much sought af­ter for the res­i­dents.

“One of the tro­phies is for an ex­hibitor over the age of 90, we ac­tu­ally have a num­ber of ex­hibitors over 90,” she said.

“We have pro­fes­sional judges that we bring in and there are prizes for first and sec­ond in each of the sec­tions.

“The res­i­dents all get very ex­cited about win­ning tro­phies,” she said.
