September 7th 2019, the 43rd Annual Vegetable & Flower Show saw plenty of entries particularly in the vegetable classes. The recent rain and warmth really helped the exhibitors. There was also a very good response in the floral art and ladies baking classes and it was lovely to see the children’s entries. The judges were delighted to see so many entries and expressed their pleasure at the high standard of exhibits. Cups and Certificates were presented by Mrs Barbara Bullion.
