Tessa was delighted to be asked to present the 80th Anniversary Show & Sale prizes at a packed gathering at The George Hotel in Wedmore.

Church Street was closed to traffic in anticipation of the crowds, and to mark the 80th milestone, the Nat West Bank Chambers were used to host a special exhibition of Wedmore Young Farmers’ history, with an interesting display of photographs from across the 80 years of shows.
