THE 85th annual Littlewick Show is set to provide a perfect summer outing this Bank Holiday - and it is not too late to enter.

It all happens on Monday at Bottle Meadow, Knowl Hill.

But show organisers will be in the largest marquee on the showground between 2pm and 4pm on Saturday, willing to explain how competitors can enter a wide range of competition classes.

You can enter giant sized vegetables, fruits, blooms. The schedule also has classes for cookery and handicrafts, plus categories ranging from knitting, sewing, embroidery and crochet, to model making, country crafts and toys.

The thrifty can show off their ingenuity by entering 'something new from something old' and the popular class for senior citizens affords older people an additional challenge. For budding artists, there is the opportunity to enter a painting or drawing.

The photographic section is a must for camera enthusiasts.

The children's section includes competitions for a decorated bookmark, miniature garden, vase of garden flowers, animals made from vegetables or fruit, plus handicrafts, cookery, photography, painting, drawing and Lego model categories.

For those who enjoy arranging flowers this year's competition themes include nursery rhymes. Classes include 'teddy bears picnic', oranges and lemons', 'twinkle, twinkle, little star,' 'ten green bottles'.

You can enter a miniature arrangement not exceeding 6'' wide, deep of high - even a hand-tied bouquet for a bridesmaid.
