Wonderful display of dahlias and vegetables.

Autumn Show Saturday 6th September

On a fine Saturday, the Village Hall was filled with a colourful display of plants and flowers with dahlias showing a great resurgence in fashion, and our vegetable growers also contributing many fine exhibits.
Once again the most popular class was the Men’s Challenge cookery and the photographic classes were also well supported, both adult and junior.  As ever, the Juniors also showed many interesting items in their horticultural section (especially the novel creatures made from fruit & veg) and in cookery, among which was the newly introduced Junior Challenge Class with ‘brownies’ made to a given recipe.
