This was one of the most succesful shows for a long time, not only for the flower show but the atmosphere at the fete was very relaxed and happy. We had the usual weather problems with the roses but on the day the most difficult job for the Gardening Club was fitting all the entries into the limited space of the hall - not that we were compaining the members excelled themselves.The horticultural judge was very complimentary about the entries - 'the mixed flower exhibits were incredible - in over 12 years of judging he said it was the best display he had ever seen, even in the big shows, well done". The domestic and flower arrangement judges were also very complimentary. The childrens exhibits -" some wonderfully creative work by all the children". In the domestic section we had 17 entries for the Spoon Cake but who won ? - Megan Wimshurst, aged 13 with Constance |Barter third, aged 11, so we slightly older ones had better look to our laurels!! - well done girls.
The "Autumn Show" is the next important date - Saturday 10th September. Flowers, Plants, all those aspiring cooks - young and not quite so young, do give it a try ,all are welcome.
