Our 2018 show was held on Saturday 8th September. After the challenges of the summer drought came the heavy rain but this didn’t deter our members & we had an even higher number of entries than last year – 269! There were some fabulous exhibits & our judges commented on the high standards of the entries which filled the village hall with a beautiful display. There are lots of photos on our Gallery Page and a report on the blog. A big thank you to everybody who entered, supported and helped out. June Morris won the Tom Ethelstone Memorial Trophy for the highest number of points overall, & Ivy Evans scooped the Lewis Cup for the most points in the vegetable classes. And our members’-only class for the pots of Acidanthera that we gave out as bulbs in spring gave a perfect backdrop from their vantage point on the stage. Well done everybody!
