The Annual Dunkerton Show takes place this Saturday in Dunkerton Parish Hall. This is a competitive show of garden produce, cookery, art and craft, photos. There are plenty of classes for children as well as adults and entry is open to residents of, and members of clubs based in, Dunkerton, Tunley, Withyditch and Carlingcott and a wide range of cups and prizes to be won. The show is open for viewing from 3pm and finishes with an auction of much of the produce at 4.15pm (proceeds to Dunkerton Parish Hall). The schedule of classes, downloadable entry form and all the information you need is at

Dunkerton Fair cancelled

We regret to announce that a combination of circumstances have made it impractical to proceed with the Dunkerton Fair and Dog Show this year. The reasons are as follows:

•       The field in front of the church, which has been the site of the Fair for many years, is not available to us this year

•       The suggested alternative, the Cricket Ground and Pavilion, is not currently in a suitable state

•       We have recently learned that the proposed date clashes with the Peasedown Party in the Park, and we know from past experience that such a clash has a seriously adverse effect on numbers attending the Fair

•       To reconvene the Fair in a different location and on a different date this summer is beyond the resources of the current organisers.
