Cancellation of 2020 Egton Bridge Old Gooseberry Show

It is with regret that the Egton Bridge Old Gooseberry Society committee has reached the inevitable conclusion that the 2020 edition of the oldest gooseberry show in the world has to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety of our members and visitors is our principle priority and we can see no way to even hold a ‘socially distanced’ show. We are confident that we will be flooded with tales of monster berries robbed of their moment of glory, it is amazing how berries that never make it to the show are the largest ever grown.

All being well we will return in 2021 and in the meantime, we wish all our members, supporters and friends best wishes, stay safe and tend those bushes with all the TLC they richly deserve. We would welcome any pictures of the berries that would have been so that next year we can at least have a display of the show that would have been.

Any questions or queries should be addressed to the myself.

Best regards,

Ian Woodcock
Secretary
Egton Bridge Old Gooseberry Society
