Heritage celebrated

PENNY farthings, home-made jam, brooches and tea cosies will all be making an appearance at this year’s Pakenham Show in celebration of the theme ‘heritage’.
The show will present arts and crafts from the past 100 years through cooking competitions, needlework, card making, flower arranging and home brew competitions among many others which will cater to all ages and interests.
This year, children eight years and under can enter a handwriting competition while the older kids will be asked to write a short essay on their heritage in keeping with the theme.
There is something for all age groups and while the kids are busy the adults can make their way to the wine competition.
Local winemakers are being asked to submit their best drop so that an anonymous, professional taster and his apprentice can taste and judge the ‘best in show’.
The different classes that can be entered include the dry white wine section, the sweet white, dry red, sweet red and locally grown liquor. Pavilion steward, Val Vale says while they are looking for local vineyards to enter, the outer areas such as the Yarra Valley are also welcome to enter a bottle or two.
The bottles should have labels removed and the winner of the best exhibit will receive a rosette.
