All enquiries to the secretary, Evelyn
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
