This year’s Portobello Village Show certainly hit the spot for a lot of people. The kids enjoyed the games provided by the Portobello Rotary Club. The races organised by the Portobello Running club also proved immensely popular for all ages. However it did prove difficult to pull the adult men away from Vic’s Model Trains on display.
The “Garden in a box” competition definitely provided a great platform to show just how vivid an imagination some of us have within Portobello. (See photos on the Photo Gallery page).
Portobello Ladies Guerilla String Quartet was an absolute delight for the visitors to the show and provided an air of grace and sophistication to the whole proceedings.
The great atmosphere was simply a reflection of the many active community groups, friends and families who live and work in Portobello, and a community committed to making the Village Show one of the most enjoyable days of the year. The beautiful weather merely something we all deserved. Until next year.
