Annual Exhibition of Sibford Horticultural Society held in Mr Ainge’s field opposite the church. There were very many people from surrounding villages. Everything passed off well. I was timekeeper and starter at the washing competition which caused much fun. Mrs Way and Mrs Watson were there. The former is staying with Miss Dix for a few days. Mr Garrard of Brailes, his wife, another sister Maud were here to the show and tea. So were Mrs Page and Mrs Kerr. I stayed in the field and dancing tent, mostly with Mr Oddie, until 12.30 am. Everything was quiet and orderly.
