It's Dorset County Show Day! Enjoy the brilliant Vegetable Vehicles created by the next generation's talented engineers, entered in our virtual competition

Vegetable Creatures!

It’s Dorset County Show Day, we’d love to be at Dorchester, meeting and greeting guests and enjoying one of the finest Agricultural shows in the land.  Obviously, it’s not to be this year, but a huge thank you to the children who joined the spirit of the show, and created fantastic ‘Vegetable Creatures’ for the Dorset County Show Symonds & Sampson virtual competition.

Representatives of the show have been suitably challenged by the quality of the entries, and thoroughly enjoyed seeing the fabulous creations submitted.

The Winners!

Congratulations to 6-year-old Benjamin, whose impressive creature (above) is the winner of Class 1, and to 8-year-old Esme for her porcupine in Class 2, we look forward to welcoming them to our stand at the 2021 show.

A big thank you to all the budding engineers who took the time to enter the show! We hope we’ll see their craft entries in person in 2021.

Thank you to Dorset County Show secretary Will Hyde, and the committee for joining forces with Symonds & Sampson to run the competition.   

Here are our favourite runners-up entries!
