Autumn Show 2018

Despite the cold and wet spring followed by an exceptionally hot summer there was a record number of entries for the Club’s Autumn Show. The array of fruit, vegetables, flowers, cakes, biscuits and jams filled the Village Hall and created a more then usually attractive display. The photography classes attracted a great deal of attention particularly in the light of the judge’s interesting comments. Thanks to the three Junior exhibitors for their models, paintings and biscuits and thanks to all those who entered and made an early start on Saturday morning in order to select, collect and display their exhibits before the judging started at 10.30am. We are also grateful to our external judges, who often travel some distance to be with us and who take great care and consideration in their judging. The individual comments they make on the domestic, junior and photography classes are greatly appreciated.

We try to make the Show a friendly and attractive event for anyone who would like to take part. There are 64 classes covering a wide range of exhibits. You do not need to be an expert or grow vegetables, fruit or flowers specifically for show purposes. There are excellent chances of winning a 1st, 2nd or 3rd prize even if you are entering for the first time and just taking part is rewarding. We would like to see more of what you grow normally in your garden and for those who are not gardeners or do not have a garden the cooking and photography classes provide an opportunity to take part. In particular we would like to encourage more children to enter the Junior classes.

We are grateful to everybody who helped make this another very enjoyable and successful afternoon, exhibitors, judges and helpers alike.
