Spring Show - 4 April 2015

An excellent array of daffodils, spring flowers, pot plants and vegetables greeted the numerous visitors, together with adult handicraft, a vast number of entries in the three photographic classes, wine and cookery exhibits. As ever the most hotly contested class was the 'Men's Challenge' – a sticky ginger cake made to a given recipe with a record-beating 13 entries giving an amazing variety of results. The adult handicraft included some unusual items including a hand sewn box of chocolates and a globe made of spanners!

 

Once more the Junior classes were very well supported with most creative entries - again in horticulture, handicraft, cookery and photography.
