On Monday 1st July the sun shone beautifully allowing everyone to enjoy our B.B.Q. without the need for coats and hats. This year we were entertained by OK Reunited which along with the food and wine made the evening go with a swing. Special thanks to Eric Barnes for the use of his farm and facilities.
On Saturday 17th August we held the Annual Flower and Produce Show. All the exhibitors came together to show their produce which in some categories proved to be very competitive. There were a few more exhibits this year than last year, thanks to some new exhibitors. The children’s section gave the judges a lot to think about as they were all brilliant.
The results of the show are as follows:-
|Bill Smith Trophy – Best Dahlia||Angela Newton|
|Challenge Cup – Vegetables||Michael New|
|Children’s Cup||Hollie Case|
|Cookery Cup||Josie Manners|
|Flower Arrangers Cup||Rita Smith and Rosemary New|
|Geoff Sansum Trophy||Best Standard Fuschia – Richard Sansum|
|Photography Cup||Gavin Naisby|
|Rose Bowl – Flowers||Patricia Sansum|
Our next meeting will be on Monday 2nd September at 7:30pm with a talk entitled “Field and Hedgerow Flowers, Wildlife and Plants.“
