Unst Show: Top class cakes and carrots on view

THE UNST Agricultural Show took place last Saturday. The event is staged in Haroldswick and Balta­sound in alternate years and this was Baltasound’s turn.

The Baltasound Show has been running in its current form since after World War II and resulted from a combining of an indoor show and separate pony show. The SWRI organises all the indoor categories and the Unst Show Committee the outdoor ones. The judges are usually experts in their individual fields. They are asked to participate and are, reportedly, usually delighted as it is considered an honour. They come from outside the isle and change year-on-year to ensure anonymous and fair decisions are reached. This year judges from Walls, Lerwick and Yell attended the event, which took place in rather dull but dry, mild conditions.

Most of the judging took place in the morning with the public being able to enjoy viewing at the entries and awards given during the afternoon. The event was well attended and provided entertainment for all; young and old, local and tourist. Indoors, visitors were greeted with a huge array of flowers in various vases and arrangements. I cannot remember seeing a better display. Perhaps we have to thank the unexpectedly sunny summer conditions for the bumper blooms.

Award-winning gardener Hazel Laurenson explained that her methods include a “pony muck and water” mix. She grew her winning flowers and vegetables outdoors as she does not have a poly tunnel. “It’s the summer gales that you have to watch,” she explained. “The wind can do the most damage to the entries for the show. This year we’ve been lucky, in fact, some of my flowers came so early, they were over by the time the show came.”

Although her plants all looked magnificent, I was surprised to learn she doesn’t have time to garden every single day; most of her plants are perennials and she fills the spaces with annuals. Just before the show, she just picks the ones that are looking their best and arranges them in a nice vase. She usually tries to enter something into the show every year.

“I think this year there were even more entries in the flowers and vegetables than last year, the standard was very good,” she observed, thankful that she does not have any bother from hungry rabbits.

As well as winning prizes, Hazel is also the secretary of the show committee, the group that organises the outdoor events. It is a huge undertaking and extra helpers each year are very welcome.

Besides the floral splendour, the hall also housed the junior and senior arts and crafts, including shell craft, photography, paintings and drawings, a huge spread of baking, knitting and needlecraft.

The snooker room became a showcase for eggs, vegetables, curds and jams. A more perfect onion and cabbage, I have not seen. A sneaky word with a former judge revealed that even the hint of green at the top of a carrot can mean the difference between carrot-gold and carrot-bonze. I really did not envy the onion judges either – they all looked the same to me and the thought that some of the dedicated contestants might leave empty handed brought tears to my eyes . . .

The knitting and needlepoint had fewer entries than in previous years but they were of an especially high standard. I hope the local school children can enter some of their knitting club items next year. Having said that, there were more junior art entries than ever (including baking done at the school) and many children were supporting the event on the day and also showing their animals.

Eileen Anderson won the most points for baking for the first time, despite entering goodies most years. She was taught by her mother, by her teachers and by a missionary called Mr Dodd who ran a local evening class.

“My family will eat all the winning entries,” she laughed, “especially the grandchildren.”

I asked Eileen if she had any tips for baking success and was surprised to hear the answer.

“No, I don’t really know what I do because sometimes it’s good and sometimes it’s not. It’s just trial and error, just keep going.”

The baking section was of special interest to me – how (and more importantly, why?) would one judge a chocolate cake competition without tasting any samples? As with the vegetables, the decorated cakes were judged on appearance – which says a lot of our society today. For me, the function of a cake, or a carrot, is to be eaten and enjoyed and thus I am left to admire the willpower of the judges. The proof of the puddings was not in the eating.

Thankfully, the proof of the livestock was not in the eating either. Outside there were pens of animals and a show ring where some of them were walked. A sensitively placed line of quads was positioned between the animals and the hamburger stand. A beer tent housed the bar and a group of local musicians that gathered and played together on the day.

Although, sadly, the adult sack race did not make it out of the blocks, I did enjoy the welcome return of the riding ponies and the Shetland foal competitions. The judge certainly looked the part in his bowler hat. Money raised from all the events goes into the funds to cover costs, including prize money for first, second and third place in all the events, which has stopped being awarded at many other shows of its kind.

Is the investment and weeks of preparation and planning worth it? I certainly think so and Italian visitor, Massimo Ortisi, agreed.

“What I liked most was the friendliness of the people and the creativity of the Shetland people,” he said. “For example with the totem poles made of recycled computers and wood, shells and paper.” Although he too is from an island (Sicily), it seemed that the show has been a unique exp­erience.

“We do not have anything similar in Sicily, we have friendly people and we are an island community but we do not have a farming show. Our culture is different. Our shows have food but the items are cooked, not raw.

“The Unst show was very interesting and fun for me and my brother Vincenzo who now lives here and works at the PURE Energy Centre. We liked the whole day, including the concert and dancing. I appreciate all these efforts being made to maintain the traditions.

“I liked seeing the young people and the older people joining together at the same event – there is a strong sense of community here.”

The show certainly demonstrates triumph over adversity. With months of planning, prizes to be won and hundreds of spectators, this “Farming Olympics” is an annual celebration of what can be achieved in Britain’s northern-most point despite depopulation, wind and limited crop-growing land.

I hope the obvious enthusiasm of the younger entrants continues and they help to organise and maintain the show for many, many more years.
