Horticultural Society Summer Show On 24 June

19th of September 2006

Despite the hose pipe ban and the wonderfully hot weather, which made watering the garden a back breaking chore and gave you arms that stretched past your knees,  the village hall was full of 185 fantastic exhibits.   We were wondering how our members would cope with these conditions, but we needn’t  have worried. True, the fruit and vegetable section  was a little sparse but the rest of the classes were well filled, especially the class for the best specimen rose which attracted 14 entries and was won by Sue Ellis. Margaret Stratford swept the board with her sweet peas winning  four classes and  Marguerite Browning excelled in the handicraft classes.  Eileen Foulgham won 2 of the 3 classes for floral art coming second in the third.  Roger Pigg, our show secretary, was the most successful exhibitor winning three trophies.  All in all a great show and a big thank you to Lady Nicholls who was kind enough to present the prizes, for which we are extremely grateful. Another big thank you to our judges and to all the people who give their time and help to make our shows both fun and successful, we couldn’t manage without you all.
