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.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE TRADING HUT DURING THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS

At an extra-ordinary Committee Meeting, it was unanimously agreed to keep the Trading Hut open for the time being, unless government regulations tell us differently or we are unable to man the hut as a result of a lack of volunteers.

We ask you to please abide by the following:

WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE ENTERING THE TRADING HUT EVERY TIME.
(THE TOILETS WILL BE LEFT OPEN DURING TRADING HOURS)

ONLY ONE CUSTOMER AT A TIME AND PLEASE KEEP AT LEAST A METRE BETWEEN PEOPLE

PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE TRADING HUT IF YOU ARE SHOWING ANY  SIGNS OF COUGH, COLD OR FEVER – THANK YOU

The refreshment area will be outside unless it is raining and anti-virus wipes will be used to keep everything clean. The counter, scales and other areas will be cleaned with anti-virus wipes after every customer.

Please also note:

  1. Onions are sold out but we still have a few Duke of York, Kestrel and Desiree Potatoes
  2. You can pay your subscriptions at the Trading Hut, if you still have not done so.

Thank you so much from all the Committee for your understanding during this difficult time.
