Spring Show 2014

DSC09048_DxODaffodils were the stars of the show when we held our annual Spring Show.
Standards were so high that there were 4 entries in the Champion Class, with exhibitors coming from as far afield as Bristol and Hampshire.
The show continues to grow from strength to strength with entries up nearly 20 percent on 2013 with 215 exhibits from 41 entrants. As Chairman I was particularly delighted with the art and photographic entries. Judges commented on the high standards set by the exhibitors in all classes and that it was a delight to come and judge at our shows.

Many thanks to everyone who made the show such a success.
