Summer Show Results and Next Meeting

Our Summer Show on 20th August was vey successful. We received almost 300 entries of a very good standard. Plenty of visitors enjoyed the display and stayed to have a go on the Tombola followed by tea and cake. A huge thankyou to all who helped set up the tables etc., served tea and of course to the exhibitors and Judges.

Our first Meeting after the Summer break will be our A.G.M. on 8th September. This will include a tribute to our greatly missed late President, Peter Read. His sons Mark and Adrian will be present with photos and scapbooks. They will also share their memories of their Dad.
