The annual Coates Village Show returns in July, with a range of categories to enter, stalls and activities for all ages.

The show has two main events; the first is a show competition, where entrants can put forward a range of products and crafts for judging with the goal of being crowned ‘overall winner’.

The other event is a fun afternoon for all the family with lots of activities.

Like in previous years, the competition will have categories for vegetables, fruit and salad, flowers and plants, cookery, photography, handicraft and farming, as well as categories specifically for children.

Entry to the competition is open to everyone living in the Team Parish area, including Whttlesey, Ponders Bridge, Eastrea, Coates, Turves and surrounding farms and smallholdings, as well as any students that go to the schools in this area, no matter where they live.
