Thousands descended on a popular village show at the weekend.

The annual Chalfont St Giles show saw revellers flock through its gates on Saturday (September 3) from 11.30am-5pm.

It was the first time since 2014 that the show was held at Stone Meadow, described as its ‘ritual home’, having been held at Narcot Lane over the past two years.

The biggest show in the village’s calender, the theme this year was ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ and the list of activities included a sheep show, a double wheel of death, a falconry centre and an extreme stunt team.

Various competitions for both adults and children alike ran throughout the day, including cookery, fruit and vegetables, craft and creative writing.

Elle O’Conner, one of the competition organisers, said they were up on entries from last, with more than 1,100 taking part.

A live auction, a double wheel of death and a tug of war, along with a karate and kick boxing demo, were also among the events on offer for the entertainment of the crowd.

The show has raised thousands of pounds for good causes over the years.

One of the organisers, Garry Brown, said there was ‘fantastic support’ from the village: “The displays and the acts were amazing, really good.

“We would like to thank all the helpers for all their support.

“The food tent was mobbed.

“It was just a great show, it was fabulous.”
