Congratulations to young Bluebell Harrison from Blockley who won the top prize in Moreton Show’s summer competition and then generously gave it away to children the Little Pickles Nursery in Longborough.
Bluebell, who is nine years-old, became the proud owner of a splendid pedal tractor – kindly donated by Lower Quinton Garage – when her name was plucked out of the hat on September 5, which would have been show day.
But Bluebell, who also won another of the summer competitions with her recycling sculpture, decided that she was a bit too big for the tractor and donated it to the nursery which is attached to her own primary school in Longborough.
Rose Smith, from Moreton Show, who organised the series of summer online competitions when the show was cancelled because of the Coronavirus, said it was the perfect outcome.
‘It was lovely of Bluebell to donate the tractor to the Little Pickles Nursery. The online competitions for youngsters proved very popular and sparked a lot of interest and drew a lot of entries. We’re very grateful to everyone who entered, all those who donated prizes and to Lower Quinton Garage for the special prize of the pedal tractor, which proved to be a big hit.
‘Of course, it was very disappointing when this year’s Moreton Show had to be cancelled but we look forward to welcoming everyone back to the show in 2021.’
