I am sure that everyone who attended our special show this year would agree that it was a resounding success. It is the first time that I have been involved with the setting up and running of the show on the day.

It is a huge job for our members and a special debt of gratitude is owed to Marie Gilby, our show secretary, who made all the arrangements from start to finish, and got so many of us involved on the day. To have everything up and running in time for the judges by 10.30am takes great effort both on the night before and from 8am on the day. Not to mention the ladies that provided a delicious lunch for the judges and stewards before the doors opened. We had over 400 entries (100 more than last year!) from the under fives upwards! Once the doors had opened it was a steady stream of visitors and members who came to view the wonderful exhibits, have a cup of tea, buy raffle and tombola tickets and goods from our cake and produce stall.

The Society would like to thank all our sponsors of the Show, and everyone who donated the amazing array of raffle and tombola prizes. We hope the Show was enjoyed by all and hopefully it will encourage not only new members to our Society, but also new exhibitors for next year's show. There were certainly lots of happy faces who went home with their cups and prize money, not to mention the wonderful raffle prizes.

Now that the excitement of the Show is over for another year, we can look forward to the monthly meetings resuming after the summer break. On Thursday 10th September we have Mr Chris Howkins coming to give us a talk on poisonous plants (7.30 in the Village Hall). If you enjoyed the Show, why not come along as a visitor to one of our meetings and then maybe you will be inspired to join us!!

If you want any further information please call me on 01243 576057.
