ONE of the district’s longest running shows will take place for the 94th time on Saturday (SEP 15).

Every year, the Beaufront Show takes over Hexham’s Beaufront First School, bringing an injection of colour and creativity from people of all ages.

Organised by the Beaufront and District Fruit and Vegetable Association, it is steeped in tradition.

Once again it will showcase the best in home produced fruit, vegetables, baking and handicrafts. There will also be a photography competition, with fire being this year’s photography theme.

Entries are open to people who live in the Beaufront area of Hexham, but show secretary John Middleton said there are some exceptions.

He explained: “It’s open to all parents and carers of children at the school, even if they live further afield, and this year, we have added something new.

“If you are a grandparent of a child at the school, but don’t live in the Beaufront area, you can now enter this show, so long as your grandchild enters.”

Mr Middleton said one of the shows strengths is the support it receives from children and their families. The day’s schedule will include a variety of children’s sports.

Entrants will begin staging exhibits from 8.30am on Saturday, and the show will open to the public at 2.30pm.

Trophies will be presented at 3.45pm, and an auction of produce will take place at 4.30pm, followed by a raffle.

Proceeds from this year’s Beaufront Show will go to North Tyne Mountain Rescue.
