Carol Service 2010.

This took place in mid-December, and was a great success.

Autumn Show, September 2010.

The Autumn Show returned, and despite a variable growing season, Swaffham Priorites came up trumps with their produce.

  • The egg category - new for this year - was well represented, with a range of shell colours and some still-warm entries.
  • The omission of a sunflower category was a disappointment to many, and will return next year.
  • Similarly, the cake entries were down due to the ignorance of the (male) organisers: we will do better next time!
  • The auction of produce, with Alastair Everett wielding the gavel, was a great success.
  • Cream teas were extremely well-received.
  • The new village dog show attracted a fresh audience, as well as dogs in silly outfits.

The Village Feast, June 2010.

The Village Feast took place on the 12th June this year, a little later than usual, but with better weather.

  • Many locals came to join in the fun and games.
  • Refreshments were available throughout.
  • The day started with the annual go-cart race and moved seamlessly into the Feast (via lunch, naturally).
  • The annual Egg-Throwing contest completed the festivities.
