VILLAGE SHOW WITH A WILD SIDE
THOUSANDS of people flocked to the annual Chalfont St Giles village show for yet another successful year.
A crowd of about 7,000 attended the event on Saturday, which was held Cameron Farm in Narcot Lane.
Organisers of the show, which has been running for more than a century, use whatever surplus money is left over to donate to local good causes.
Garry Brown, chairman of Business and Traders for Chalfont St Giles (BAT4CSG), said it went really well.
He added: “It actually ran like clockwork throughout. I asked people to rate it out of 10, and I was getting eights and nines. People were enjoying it. Our job is to create a day out for the village.”
He continued: “We were absolutely mobbed with people. I would like to say a massive thank you for all the support we got, and for the hundreds of helpers that help us out on the day.”
And according to Mr Brown he won’t be short of help next year saying that a number of people asked if they could join him.
He said: “We had a number of people come up to us during the show saying, we’re really enjoying this, I’d love to join your team.”
Mr Brown also said that next year the team will make every effort to bring the show back into the centre of the village after holding it at the farm in the past two years.
He said: “We’re going to make every effort to get back into the village, come hell or high water.”
