Week St Mary’s Harvest Queen, Kekezza Stripp rode side saddle to her Crowning this year accompanied by her Crown Bearer, Jack Biggs and Attendants Chloe Morris and Zola Courtenay who travelled in a pony and jingle. There was a large procession of Fancy Dress competitors and flag waving parishioners and visitors who followed Mike Goodman in his patriotic truck which provided the music for the event.
The crowning ceremony was presided over by Reverend Rob Dickenson in Week St Mary Playing Field where the Revel fair was in full swing. Last year’s Harvest Queen Katie Goodman thanked the Parish for their support during the year and placed the harvest Queen’s crown and sash on the new Queen. Charlotte Booker and Amelia Jessop presented flowers and William Cox presented fruit to the new Queen who then made her vows for the year.
The winning Fancy Dress under 5’s group was the Johns Family in their family ship ‘Buoys and Gills’ and the under 5’s class was won by the little butterfly, Chloe Martin. The 5-12’s class was won by Princess, Tia Van der Linden and the group by Kian and Zak Cock as Batman and Robin. All the other entries received 2nd prize or Well Done Certificates and then spent the afternoon enjoying the bouncy castle and games around the field. The highly successful Dog Show was once more organised by Chris Warneford and Emma Warneford was the judge. (separate report should follow from Chris Warneford)
The gardening Competition this year was organised by Mr and Mrs Smith who had a fine array of entries, the most points were won by Richard Bennett who was awarded the Revel Gardening Cup.
The new Scarecrow co-ordinator, Chris Jordan announced that this years Scarecrow Festival had raised over £600 for the Week St Mary Magazine which will as usual make a donation of the major part of this to the Revel Fund. He then introduced the Harvest Queen to this year’s winner for the display earning the most money during the festival, Lorraine Sachs. Lorraine’s display entitled the Greatest Show on Earth was a spectacular array of circus scarecrows which had been immensely popular with visitors and earned her the Scarecrow Trophy which was presented by the Harvest Queen. The Parish Hall was very busy as friends old and new met for tea and chat. There was plenty of lovely food provided by parishioners and served by a willing band of helpers organised by Hilda Axford and Margaret Johns.
In the Evening families joined in a Revel Chariot Racing Challenge in West Week Close and then adjourned to the ‘tent city’ which had been moved to the Parish Hall car park. Here a bonfire bar (by Week St Mary Footbal Club) and barbecue (by Paul and Lorraine Sachs) kept everyone comfortable well into the night and raised a further £600 for Revel funds.
It is of course increasingly difficult in this busy world to find people willing to give enough of their time and energy to stage large events such as Week St Mary Revel, but the Revel committee would like to thank most sincerely, all of those who did just that again this year to make another most enjoyable and successful weekend. There are too many to name, but the committee knows and appreciates every one of them as do the Parish organisations to whom the funds raised will be distributed later in the year.

Week St. Mary Revel Dog Show 2009

Once again the weather held fair for the 5th Revel Dog Show which was well supported with 31 dogs taking part. Each dog was able to enter a maximum of 6 out of 8 classes with rosettes awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each class. A perpetual trophy (donated by Angela & Ray – Treetops) was also awarded to the winner of Best Long Haired in memory of Storm (2006 Revel Dog of the Year) who recently passed away unexpectedly. The winner from each of the classes went into a final to find ‘Revel Dog of the Year 2009’. The event went very smoothly with all the dogs (and owners) on their best behaviour. A big thank you to my daughter Emma Warneford who did an excellent job as judge and also to all the participants who made the event such a success and enabled us to raise £85 towards the Revel Funds.

Final – Revel Dog of the Year 2009
1st Bridget (Black Labrador) – Victoria Sowerby
