The Long Marston and Puttenham Village Show of 1986 was, as usual, a popular and well attended occasion, with the usual attractions of the Dog Show, Clay Pigeon Shoot, Children’s Fancy Dress and Pony Rides.
I was delighted to be the instigator of Pat Carty’s visit to Long Marston on 21st April. Though all I did was pass on his email address following the articles about Pat that we produced for our website.
The first Long Marston and Puttenham Village Show was held in August 1936. The dominant theme for this first event was the vegetables and flowers competitions with 46 different categories plus 2 more for children.
