This year’s Summer Flower Show as a great success, all the exhibitors are to be congratulated on their efforts despite the inclement weather, regretfully no peonies this year.
A big thank you to all of you who made cakes, and to Jan and Sam for their hard work on the refreshments front. (70 cups of tea and coffee were made during the afternoon). Thank you to the volunteers who helped with the organisation of the show, before, during and afterwards for the tidy up.
