Summer Show Results 2017

Our Summer Show this year was again very successful.  Held on 19th August, it attracted 330 exhibits from 47 exhibitors.  Both figures are higher than last year and it is very encouraging that they include several new exhibitors.

The judges were kept busy and here we see Dennis Hewitson inspecting the vegetables with Mike Rawlins in the background starting on the dahlias.

The cookery judge won’t need any lunch after sampling all this.

All the judges commented on the high standard of exhibits across the show so well done to all who entered.

The many visitors enjoyed looking around during the afternoon, having a go on the tombola and finishing off with tea and home-made cake.

More photos for your interest.



These pelargoniums were kindly supplied by Island Gardens Nursery in the Spring and grown on by our members. Eve Morris, Gill Wilkinson and Mary Edgell won first, second and third prizes.


Colin Giles judged the flowers and pot plants.We are sad that he has decided to retire from judging.

Plenty of photographs.
