Every year, Enfield borough council host the Enfield Autumn Show in the Town Park. It’s reminiscent of the county agricultural shows you get around the country and a big celebration of everything local to this area. We try and go most years, and this year seemed to be the Show’s best in quite a few years.

There was the usual horticultural tent with fruit, vegetables, flowers and crafts.

I think that the knitted blue tit was my most favourite thing in the tent, and it didn’t win anything! Who are these judges?

Once again, Dave and I got thinking about what we would enter if we took part. Dave chose the apple pie category as there were only two pies entered this year so the chances of winning something are quite high! I fancied myself entering the framed photo category. We shall see if we actually get round doing it!

There were stalls selling plants, places to do crafts and learn to hula hoop and vehicles from Whitewebbs Transport Museum.

Also present was a small petting corner with rabbits and guinea pigs. Betsy had her first ever ride on a horse. I cried a bit, because I’m an over-emotional massive sap.

Obviously, for any almost-three year old the best thing about the Show was the fairground and their ridiculously over-priced rides. It’s worth the cost to see Betsy’s and her soul brother Caspar’s little faces though.
