Big Do 2018 photos

poster bigdo2018It rained the day before, and the day after – but the sun shone for the Big Do 2018, held on bank holiday Saturday 25 August.  It was a lovely relaxed atmosphere not only during the event, but as we set up in the morning and cleared up afterwards – thanks to everyone who helped out!  And yes, we made almost £800 – which couldn’t have been achieved without you!

WELLY WANGING—U12 Will R; ladies Olivia H men Jon P-R.
Jnr—Ben P-R; snr James H; veteran Di W.
PARTY TRICK—Tess (singing for her supper); PRETTIEST BITCH—Canadian Tess; MOST HANDSOME DOG—Mak; SCRUFFIEST– Mabel; WAGGIEST TAIL– Ted; BEST CHILD HANDLER—Piglet & Harrison; BEST 6 LEGS (dog & owner) – Millie BEST VETERAN—Bonnie BEST RESCUE—Walnut & Clover BEST IN SHOW—Bonnie.

As can be seen from the photos below (thanks to photographers Chris, Gavin, Julie R, Louise and Lynda), many people enjoyed the day – and the new offerings  – the coconut shy, the hat decoration stall, the bike agility contest, the mini-digger challenge, the chess challenge, the blacksmith display, guessing the weight of a horse, the children’s games and more…

  1. Message from Liz: Does anybody know Wayne Brown? He won the “Guess the weight of Cyril the pony” at the Big Do on Saturday (158 kg – who’d have thought it?) and I have a bottle of wine for him.

    Also – did you leave your axe behind in the field? Not sure what you were doing with it, but we have that as well….

    PS – There’s also a small child’s pink hoody with dark blue stars that was left behind. Is that anyone’s?
