Every year we have an Autumn Show to show off our vegetables, baking skills and more! More information about the 2019 show will be added closer to the time.
The Show was re-introduced in 2010 after a gap of several years. Its aim was not only to raise some money for St Peters church restoration but also to provide a fun event for the people of Castle Carrock – adults and children. It’s an informal event for amateur growers, bakers and craftspeople. The school was involved, with all children invited to create a scarecrow from a wooden spoon. These were shown on the village green. We had a ‘men only’ Victoria sponge cake class – which had the biggest number of entries.
2011 saw some changes to the schedule. The men only sponge cake class remained, there was a Lego class for children and there was a class for ladies only to decorate a chocolate cake. Two classes were sponsored by national companies; a home baked loaf, sponsored by Carrs Milling and a fruit cake, sponsored by Whitworths.
The competitor gaining the most points will win the Margaret Forster Memorial Plate, a silver plate to be held for one year, kindly donated in 1982 by a local farming family.
2012 was the 30th birthday of the introduction of a Village Show in Castle Carrock.
