The Society’s 71st Annual Show was held on the 9th August. We were favoured with a lovely sunny day but not too hot for the plants to be wilting on the show tables. Entries into the floral categories were up on last year and the benches positively groaned under the host of blooms and foliage. The vegetable classes and photography also had a good showing but sadly entries into the baking, handicrafts and produce sections were down on previous years – maybe the weather has just been too good in recent months so members have been busier in the garden then indoors!
The slideshow is of a selection of exhibit which caught my eye and I have tried to give a good flavour of the show.
