Sweet Pea and Rose Show 2021 Results

Sweet Pea and Rose Show With Peonies and Mixed Flowers 2021
Sponsored by Berkeley Homecare and TyreMarks.

The gazebos were borrowed, the tables put up and the flowers all arrived with all the volunteers and exhibitors keeping within government Covid guidelines.  In the afternoon, the sun came out and our members and guests arrived to look at the splendid display of sweet peas, roses, mixed flowers, and a few peonies.

There was also a display of member’s art contributions.

The Show was a great success, and everyone enjoyed being outside, albeit socially distanced, but enjoying strawberries and cream, bucks fizz,  tea and cake.

A Video of the prize giving can be seen here (Dropbox may be required)
