2016 Rusland Spring Show Report

The 2016 Rusland Spring Show was a great success, raising over 1800 to support the running of the Rusland Reading Room (aka Village Hall).  Committee thanks David Hoyle and Judi Winterson who kindly took up the 'baton' from Gordon and Elsie Wilkinson and who, with Robert Wallace, organised the Show this year.

Of course the Show simply wouldn't happen without the huge amount of voluntary effort and wonderful team-work provided by so many people with so many skills a real tribute to the community in Rusland.  We cannot name everyone individually here, but the Committee would like to thank in particular Susan King for her role in coordinating the amazing level of participation and quality of children's entries from the schools, and Tim Fleming and friends for their enchanting shadow plays in the church.

The spring sunshine was the icing on the cakes (which were themselves delicious!). Once again, a huge 'Thank You' to everyone who entered, visited, participated and helped out during the Spring Show weekend.
