In an attempt to raise money for the local village hall, Shaw Hall Caravan Park organised the Scarisbrick Show, one of the village’s biggest events, according to the Ormskirk Advertiser.
The flocks of families that visited the show had the chance to enter their pet pooches in the dog show, enjoy a hog roast and visit the craft tent. Meanwhile the kids could take donkey rides and play beat the goalie, while everyone got to smash plates and watch the Morris dancing.
There were a variety of stalls selling everything from jam, to handmade cards to locally-produced fruit and vegetables.
Owner of Shaw Hall Caravan Park, Sally Monaghan, said: “There’s been a lot of community involvement in the show like moving tables and putting up marquees but we are always looking for more people to get involved, especially young people.”
“This is an annual event to raise money for the village hall and we are pushing towards getting the show better for next year.”
“Scarisbrick is a big parish but we don’t do much as a community because it’s so spread out and people don’t get to hear about what’s going on or even know the village hall is here.”
Donna Moore, who lives at Shaw Hall Caravan Park, added: “Everyone working here is a volunteer and all the money goes to charity.”
“There’s been a flower display, fruit and veg competitions and the Morris dancers were fantastic and a credit to their team.
“It’s been an absolutely brilliant weekend and I’ll help out again next year because you don’t mind giving up a Sunday when it’s for the kids and hopefully next year it will be even bigger.”
