Three Hart villages joined forces to present a fun-packed family show at the weekend.

The 63rd flower show and fete organised by Dogmersfield , Winchfield and Crookham Village Horticultural Society took place at Pilcot Farm in Dogmersfield on Saturday (July 23).

Attractions included swing boats, Punch and Judy, crafts, games, sideshows and children’s events, races and amusements.

Animal lovers enjoyed the dogs and geese arena event, while petrolheads could delight at enthusiasts’ cars and motorbikes.

There was also music by Bagshot Concert Band and performances by Hook Eagle Morris Men, while everyone was kept refreshed thanks to the tea tent providing homemade cakes.

The entertainment continued with an evening barn dance in aid of society funds.

Society chairman Brian Leversha said the show was another great success.

He added: “Many comments have come in stating it was very much enjoyed, especially by the children.

“The new attractions, the swing boats, The Special Branch from Church Crookham and the Hook Morris Men all went down well and of course, all of our other fun stalls were well used as they are each year.

“The weather helped of course and was the main reason for the enthusiasts to bring their interesting cars and motorbikes along, creating the largest show of vehicles we have had.

“We had a new class of entries for eggs this year and the judge who came all the way from Heathfield said that some of them were county standard.

“The vegetable judge also said the entries were of a very high standard.”

Mr Leversha said the new barn dance band, Sharon’s Handbag, were "really brilliant" and enjoyed by the dancers.

“We must thank all the sponsors and Alf and Joy White, who allowed us to use their farm,” he added.
