Flower and Produce Show
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

August 21, 2014: Hatherleigh Gardening Club First of all a BIG thank you to everyone who supported the Flower Show, whether it be with your fantastic exhibits or by coming to view the fruits of their labours in the afternoon. It was particularly encouraging to see several new exhibitors across all the classes but again there were very few children (any tips on how to encourage more youngsters gratefully received!). All of the children who did enter received prize-money, with Lily Bater winning the cup for most points and the award for 'most outstanding exhibit by a child'. The 'Best in Show' was awarded to Audrey Reynolds for her flowering begonia - a sight to behold! Top vase was won by Jenny Pitt while Top Tray first prize went to Les Cole, who also won the Autumn Challenge Cup (most points flowers, fruit and veg. combined) and the vegetable cup. Other cups went to Mike Stamp (flowers), Pat Canham (fruit), Susan Gill (cookery) and Kay Stevens (photography).The Rose Bowl for floral arrangements was shared between Ann Goord and Monica Jones. We owe a big debt of thanks to the judges who give their time each year to deliberate between all the entries and arrive at their decisions. The raffle, teas and produce stall in the afternoon were all well supported which means we will be able to continue with the Show. Again, thanks to YOU all for your support and to all those who helped with the task of putting on the Show, both on the day and in the run up to it. Next year will be our '20th', so together lets make it bigger and better than ever!! Back to our club activities; this month, on Thursday September 18th, we welcome John Collins who will give a talk entitled 'Seed to Sowing - A year's work of a Nurseryman'. We meet, as usual, at 7.30 in the Old Schools. See you there! Susan Gill 01837 810893
