It’s good to say all classes apart from Chrysanthemums were contested.
The show tables were full in most classes to make it really challenging for judges Jane Seago and Barry Reeves who praised all exhibitors for the quality of their exhibits.
Best in Show trophy was awarded to Iris Whitaker for her colourful Physalis alkekengi ( grown for the seed heads ). Iris also won the cookery,handicrafts and photography category as well as exhibitor scoring most points
Other category winners were John Whitaker for vegetables and fruit and Mike Halliday for flowers.
Class winners included Jenny Rose, Ruth Marshall,Coral Evans, Jenny Williams,Rupert and Nicola Hadley and George Preece.
The junior section was well contested with an Autumn drawing from the youngest exhibitor Benjamin Picksley, the largest exhibit a pot grown Dahlia from Vaughan Whitaker and the most wonderful looking cakes from prize winners Freya and Georgina Hadley.
Lewis Budgen won the ‘Autumn’ drawing class with his hedgehog surrounded by real leaves and Ellison Boulter gardening club won the ‘something grown’class with a fine box of vegetables.
Well done to all exhibitors.
