77th Annual Show
We did not think we could improve on last year’s Annual Show, but this year’s was even better. Many people were queuing outside when the Show opened and we signed up lots of new members.
The same number of members entered as last year, 38, with over 270 exhibits across the classes. Many entries were from new members, who did very well and a very good response from the juniors.
We thought the bad weather conditions would deter people from being able to produce good vegetables, fruit and flowers, but everyone made the effort to give a wonderful display. The cooks excelled themselves with a wonderful display of baking.
The Mayor was very impressed and the Auction afterwards was great fun.
A big thank you to all those who exhibited or just came to enjoy the afternoon.
Our 77th Annual show is coming soon on Saturday, September 8th.
It takes place at the LARGE HALL, ST PAUL’S CENTRE

DOORS OPEN AT 2.30PM.

Anyone who wants to enter in the novice classes for first-timers can get advice from the Secretary. Also, don’t forget the categories for juniors under 14. Children and grand-children are encouraged to enter.
The Sweet Pea and Rose Show and lunch had a very good turn out and was very successful. 15 members managed to display numerous entries of Sweet Peas plus 2 juniors and 13 members entered roses, despite the poor weather conditions prior to the Show.
Sheila Puckett won the best in Show for Sweet Peas and Gabrielle Hollington Best in Show for Roses.
After the lunch, we had a quick awards ceremony when the musician finished, to allow those who
stayed on to watch the World Cup football. Ann Cable, who presented the awards, chose her favourite artwork, and this was done by Devina Rishi.
Thank you everyone for your support.
