Homecraft Section

I am looking forward to the 2018 show my fifth year as secretary of the Homecraft section. I was very pleased with the standard and number of entries in the Open Baking section last year.

There was an increase in the junior and teenage sections and once again I will be visiting some of the local primary and secondary schools and leaving some information about the classes in these sections. The Penistone Grammar School Trophy is to be awarded perpetually in the teenage section.

I introduced a gluten free class last year and was pleased with the number of entries this attracted and hope it will increase this year. It will be judged by Karen of Café Crème in Penistone.

The year 2017 was marked by the presentation of the Mayor’s Trophy to the Homecraft section which was ceremoniously handed over by the Mayor and the President on the morning of the show.

It was pleasing to see the Preserve and Confectionery sections were as popular as ever.

The number of entries in the honey section fluctuates from year to year. Last year entries in this section were slightly up.

I have introduced a new class in the wine section, a fruit liqueur.

Please visit the Homecraft tent on show day and I look forward to seeing you and wish you the best of luck with your entries.
