Muker Show 2012
At last, we had a fine, sunny day which became a brilliant day. Muker Sliver Band were on top form and didn’t have to wear their anoraks or wipe rain from their instruments. Our gate numbers were up and people came to the show from far and wide, including Isle of Mull, Belfast, Cornwall, East Anglia and then even further afield, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Nepal, Brazil, USA and Australia. We had a thrilling senior fell race and a little ‘Usain Bolt’ paid us a visit in the children’s fancy dress. Two film crews were round and about covering items for The Dales programme and a new programme called Keep Cooking and Carry On. Despite the terrible weather we have had this year which affected the horticulture entries, this was compensated for by the increase in product entries. We were very fortunate to see a display of Maypole Dancing by Reeth & Gunnerside School, everyone enjoyed the display and we have received many positive comments about the wonderful entries by the school children. Thank you Mrs Cork and team. Massive thanks to all volunteers and committee members who turned up on Monday and Tuesday to set everything up, also to the stewards in the tents and around the field, the judges and our amazing entrants.
Thank you for coming and helping to make it such a memorable day. Next year’s show is on Wednesday 4th September, 2013.  Kathy and Sinclair.
