THE CAERWENT Show was another success this year as hundreds turned out to enjoy the festivities.

Around five hundred people visited the annual show on Saturday at the Caerwent Village Hall and Playing Fields.

The events kicked off at 11:30am with guests treated to live music performances throughout the day from budding young local artists showcasing their talents to the community.

Event organiser, Neil Williams, chairman of the Caerwent Playing Fields Association said the atmosphere on the day was “buzzing.”

“It is very busy here,” he said.

“I would say around 500 people, have turned out today.

“There are around 50 stalls selling various things including crafts, jams, jewellery and beauty treatments, as well as live music, a barbecue, and a big marquee.

A number of the stalls were fundraising, including one for the Argus-backed Imogen Appeal, which is raising money for Imogen Ashwell-Lewis, who among those in the crowd on the day.

“The show has been going on for over ten years now and this year it is buzzing," added Mr Williams.

During the day visitors could take part in vegetable and craft competitions, while children had the chance to make the most of the children’s rides on offer.

The day also featured a bouncy castle, face painting, and a licensed bar, plus the chance to win a weekend away for two in the raffle.

Visitors could also take part in a free plant swap by bringing along a plant and swapping it for another for free.

Tasty refreshments were on offer throughout the day, and a Country Tea Room was provided for those attending that just want to relax with a hot brew and a slice of cake.

Richard Smith, who also helped to organise the event, added: “There is a really good atmosphere here today.

"The definite highlight of the show is the big stage where lots of local bands have been playing.”
