Sweet Peas and Rose Show 2020 Results

Sweet Pea and Rose Show July 4th, 2020

On a very blustery overcast day, the Society held its Annual Sweet Pea and Rose Show.
Due to the Corona Virus, this could not be held at St Paul’s Centre, so the Committee decided to hold the Show outside the Trading Hut at the Cheyne Walk Allotments.
Gazebos, umbrellas, and chairs were borrowed and thank you to everyone who contributed.
We had sanitizers and wipes, and everyone kept their 1m minimum distancing and there were never more than 30 people at one time.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to come and see the show.

Despite the weather, we had 14 members enter 33 vases of roses across the 7 categories.
10 members entered 32 vases of Sweet Peas across the 6 categories.
Both the highest points and Best in Show Sweet Peas were won by Sheila Puckett and both the highest points and Best in Show Roses were won by Samina Iqbal.
The Art Competition was won by Evelyn Craven.

Unfortunately, we were unable to present the Trophies or Certificates to the winners, but they were able to collect them. 

Trading Hut Times

The Trading Hut at Cheyne Walk Allotments is now officially closed until 9th February although weather permitting it will be open from time to time at weekends.

When the Hut reopens, there will be four varieties of seed potatoes and two varieties of onion sets on sale, as well as all the usual items. The Society endeavours to maintain low prices for all the products  and keep well stocked to meet member’s requirements.

Annual Show Report 2019

The 78th Annual Show

Another very successful Annual Show with 34 entrants exhibiting over 280 entries.

The new categories for Butternut Squash and Vegetable Cake were well received and will be included again in 2020.

Despite erratic weather conditions and the Show taking place a week later, our members were able to produce a wonderful selection of vegetables, fruits and flowers and a vast array of preserves and baking. The Mayor of Enfield, Cllr Kate Anolue gave an inspiring and encouraging speech.
