Scope and content

This is the Show guide produced by the Bampton Horticultural Society for their Flower and Produce Show August 9th 1980 and their Autumn Show October 4th 1980. Apart from seeing all the classes that can be entered, it is also interesting to see which local businesses took advertising space to help fund the printing. Some of those businesses are still here (2017) and others have passed into history. They include:- The W I Hall, now the Village Hall; Duttons the family grocers which is no longer a grocery shop; R F Janaway nurseries in Carterton; St John Ambulance Brigade; Bees Design & Print which is no longer in Aston; Oathurst home for the elderly, Rosebank nursing home; The Jubilee Inn, now a private dwelling; Bampton Folk Song and Music Club, recently re-formed; T A Constables the bread and cake shop, now Mark's Kitchen Chinese takeaway; R H Hickman family butcher, now Patrick Strainge family butcher; P & L Bovington fruit, veg and wet fish shop, now a private dwelling; Londis Stores now the Co-op; S Lewis for electrical appliances and accessories, now a private dwelling; D Abberley & Sons upholsterers in Aston; The Romany Inn; The Radcot Angling Club; Market Square Garage, now pulled down and Thornberry Flats built on the land; E Papworth, later known as Emmies now a private dwelling; The Morris Clown; Trevor Gardner for built-in furniture, now retired; Cotswold Country Home B&B in Alvescot; Aston Repair Depot; Westsports sports shop in Faringdon; Elephant & Castle, now a private dwelling; The Horse & Groom in Black Bourton, still open but called The Vines; The Talbot; Aston Woodcraft; The Eagle Inn, now a private dwelling; Margaret Howse Taxi Service, Margaret died several years ago now; F Ham for toys, shoes, wellingtons, slippers, handbags and more, now Polished hair dresser; W J Lock & Son builder, Bill has died and I don't know if his son is still in the trade; The George & Dragon, now a private dwelling which was the headquarters for the Horticultural Society, the Numismatic Society, the Traditional Bampton Morris Dancers and the Bampton Folk Song and Music Club.
