Collingham Agricultural Society Show set to be virtual again this year
This year’s Collingham Show will largely be held virtually this year because of the pandemic.
Lots of Saturday’s traditional events and activities have been moved online with just the ploughing, which is split into horse and open tractor categories, happening in-person. Ploughing commences at 9am.
A selection of competitions will happen virtually, including the dog show, flower show, fruit and vegetable show, bake-off and competitions for children.
Many of the shows usual events won’t be going ahead at all this year, however, such as the classic car show, show jumping and the usual stalls and games.
The popular day out that is Southwell Ploughing Match will be going ahead on Saturday, September 25, at Carrs Bank Farm, Farnsfield.
It will be on a smaller scale due to covid-19 but there will still be over 100 trade stands, free tractor and trailer rides, ploughing and various main ring attractions.
Roger Jackson, chairman of the organising committee, said: “It’s just a lovely day out in the countryside for families of all ages. There’s plenty of things to watch and do in a rural setting.”
“It won’t be as big as it has been in the past few years because of the covid situation, but it will have the same feeling and the show and the event will still be there.
“My favourite part of the day is meeting lots of people that you probably haven’t seen, especially this year, for some time and having a good natter. I think a lot of people go for that.”
