The Seymour Show held last weekend was a time for local skills to shine on a glorious spring day.
The BIG winners of the day were BEAM members, and local food producers, Cynthia Lim, Nick Bray (of Blue Tongue Berries) and Candi Westney (Rocky Passes Estate) who took out first prize at the inaugural Great Seymour Cook-off.
The late entries came in from behind with their steak and tartare sauce serveved with quail eggs along with pommes frittes, berry crepe with hazelnut cream and strawberries in balsamic vinegar to impress the judges. A $500 Aldi voucher that they won was donated to the Seymour Salvation Army Kitchen, with the rest of the prize money shared between them.
BEAM and Landcare presented information together at the show with a large stall at the entrance of the main exhibition building. Members and committee, both old and new helped to run the stall over the day providing a wide range of information for visitors.
BEAM member, Eamon South entered the lego competition with his own creation called “Battle Camp”. He came home with 2 ribbons- best design in his age group (5-7) and Most Outstanding Exhibit which was judged across all age groups. He is most impressed that he’s won a $30 Toyworld Voucher.
BEAM life member Lesley Dalziel took out the champion commercial cow and replacement heifer – of the ancient Bristol breed.
Congratulations to everyone who participated in this fun filled day.
