The Blackwater Show Sunday 18th June
FROM FLYING DISCS TO WADDLING FEET the Blackwater Country Show in Heybridge will stimulate the senses whether you try paddling a canoe, riding a bicycle, clay-shooting or fly-fishing. Celebrating the countryside, stroll among the marquees and exhibits of painters, potters, spinners and blacksmiths, preserves, bakers, and brewers with an opportunity to meet a local author, learn about farming, and admire beautifully restored classic cars.
Enjoy the lively, interactive attractions in the main ming throughout the day; professional Ultimate frisbee match with the GB U24s, the local Pony Club jump relay teams, a farmer working his sheep dogs, the Essex Police dog unit capturing a fugitive, a chance to meet the Vikings, handle birds of prey, and admire magnificent Heavy Horses in harness. Bring your pooch and enter into the fun dog show/agility/fly ball with a chance to win a rosette.
Children can enjoy meeting animals, ride traditional swing boats, drive a mini rover or ride a donkey, and there is lots of green grass to lay down your picnic rug and while away the day watching the Newfoundland dog rescue demonstrations, the vintage tractors ploughing the land, or listen to some melodies while enjoy a refreshing drink.
This is a local, big show in its twelfth year with a friendly, bustling atmosphere surrounded by soft hedgerows and natures wildlife. In support of the Essex Air Ambulance. What a great way to spend a day in the country!
