The 2017 Annual Show exceeded all expectations. There were 36 entrants including 3 novices,and 4 juniors this year.
There were also over 260 exhibits and we nearly ran out of table space. There were four new categories.
Many of our entrants were also first timers and they did extremely well. There was a large attendance of both members and people coming off the street and the Mayor, Cllr Christine Hamilton, presented the trophies and stayed to draw the raffle for us.
A full list of the prize winners can be found here.
The Auction also went very well, selling out all that was on offer.
The ambience of the St Paul’s Centre is always exceptional and will be booked again for next years show.
Thank you to all those who took part and also those who attended to support them
The sweet pea competition took place last Saturday 15th July. There were 13 entrants with 41 vases of sweet peas across the categories. Despite the inclement and changeable weather varying between icy winds, storms and extreme heat this was far more than expected.
Unfortunately, many people had to drop out when their sweet peas were not ready on the Show day.
The Show was attended by many members and guests and will be repeated next year. The art display attracted several pictures and showed off the many talents of members.
The show was followed by a Buffet and music and was enjoyed by all. There was even a little dancing…..
The results of the sweet pea competition and awards were:
