Frogham Fair had to be cancelled in 2020 and 2021, due to COVID-19 restrictions, but we are back, after an excellent day in late June 2022, when we had a huge attendance.
A traditional Village Fair, with a large arena for displays, our ever-popular Terrier Racing, and a fun Dog Show, this is a highlight of village life, and the major annual fund-raiser for the Hall. There are lots of side-shows, music and entertainment for all the family, with a bar and tea tent. The festivities end with the wheelbarrow race up the one-in-four climb of Blissford Hill.
Takes place from 12:30pm to 4:30pm and Blissford Hill wheelbarrow racing starts at 4:30pm.
The Link Villages Produce Show takes place on the first Saturday in September
each year in the Hyde Memorial Hall.
There are classes for fruit, vegetables, flowers, pot plants, home produce, preserves, craft, flower arrangements and photography. There are additional classes for young people in three age brackets – up to school year 2, school years 3 to 6 and school years 7 to 11 – and also adult novice classes.
Entries are welcome from anyone in the local area, young or old, experienced or first timers. There are cash prizes for all classes and 16 different cups are awarded.
In the afternoon the hall is open to visitors to view the exhibits, enjoy tea and home made cakes, take part in the prize draw, vote for your favourite limerick and bid in the auction of produce at the end of the show after the prize giving.
