held on Saturday 9th July 2016 on Roos Playing Field






After early morning rain, the afternoon sun greeted the large number of people who came to view the large display of wonderful exhibits, including the many plants and flowers, vegetables & fruit, flower arrangements, and all manner of produce such as eggs, bread and cakes, honey and preserves. In addition there were fine exhibits of photography, handicrafts and paintings, and many from children.
Later in the afternoon, The President of the Society, Mrs Avril Crawforth, introduced and welcomed Graham Stuart, MP for Beverley and Holderness, to present the cups and trophies to successful entrants. He was subsequently presented with a container arrangement.
Once again this year, the show welcomed a large number of attractions and outside stalls. In particular, the Burton Constable Company of Bulmen had a very busy time. During the afternoon, local DJ, Chris Earle, did an excellent job keeping everyone entertained and, of course, the show bar and BBQ did a roaring trade.
The Show has a small but highly dedicated committee which not only ensure that the high standards and traditions established over many years are maintained, but that the Show will continue to grow and flourish over future years.
The committee wish to express their thanks to all the many exhibitors and willing volunteers who help to make the Show such a huge success. 
The Committee will be pleased to welcome anybody who has an interest in joining the committee, or helping the Roos & District Horticultural Society and their Spring and Summer Shows please contact:
