Once again the green fingered amongst us – and those handy in the kitchen too – came together to show us all what can be done with a little diligence, some skill and maybe just a tiny smidge of good luck. Given the very peculiar weather this year, it was amazing how many beautiful flowers and fat, juicy looking fruits and veg there were on display. The cookery exhibits all looked very tempting as well.
26 people entered their wares, providing us with a record breaking 177 exhibits, well spread over all of the classes .
Mr R Hughes took trophies for Most points in show, most points in section A (veg), most points in section F, most points onion class and best overall allotment.
The Lady winning the Most Points in show was Mrs Liz Hughes
Mrs Di Davies won the new ECO shield for most points in all the ‘Fruity’ classes –
as well, as it happens, as winning the Comical Vegetable class with this carrot
( well, they did ask !!!)
Mr R. Reece took ‘Best in Show’ with a stupendous loaf of bread that was brought in all warm and gently steaming.
The Childrens’ Classes trophies were won by Miss A Wroe and Miss G Cropton. Mr Baker took the trophy for Best Runner Beans, and Mr R Jones won the tomato class trophy.
