Horticultural Exhibition

25th August 2018


A very big THANK YOU to all who were involved in the 93rd SHOW on Saturday 25th August 2018. The Judges praised the exhibits, again appreciating the high standard & enthusiasm from such small communities, despite the setback of a long heatwave with no rain for many weeks! The Committee is grateful to the Judges, the exhibitors, the visitors, the bakers of all the wonderful home made refreshment cakes & those ladies who served them, cooks & bottle washers all! The efforts of all those who made this 93rd Show another success, is much appreciated. THANK YOU.

Despite the heatwave & no rain for several weeks, we managed yet again to have an enjoyable & successful show. This was due in no small part to both Don & Jean Shields' organisational skills!

However, after 63 years of being involved one way or another,  Don has decided to relinquish his responsibilities as Secretary of the Horticultural Society & organiser of the annual horticultural show. He would now like to enjoy more time preparing & showing exhibits without the organisational responsibility. Thankfully, he is happy to remain in the wings for advice & support.

We would like to thank Don for his hard work, dedication & cheerful enthusiasm, without which this annual show would not have continued so successfully for so many years.

The Committee is pleased to be able to tell you that Paul Britton has volunteered to take on the responsibilities as Secretary of the Horticultural Society, & Organiser of the annual show!

The Committee will meet very soon. With this in mind, Paul welcomes any feedback on this year's show plus any ideas, thoughts or improvements for future shows. All comments will be considered & discussed, & in order to present these at the meeting, Paul would like to receive them before the end of September.
