Rose Bowl win at Okehampton Show
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

August 15, 2010: Exbourne Sampford Courtenay and Jacobstowe Women's Institute (ESC&J WI) took the coveted Rose Bowl prize in the Women's Institute Cooperative Competition at last week's Okehampton Show. After months of planning it was a nail biting wait for the ladies after they set up their table display entry on Wednesday 11 August under strict time rules; no peeking was allowed until the show opened on Thursday! Stiff opposition was encountered from 4 other WI groups but after narrowly missing the prize in 2009, ESC&J had thought hard about their entry this year. Their efforts paid off handsomely. Picture shows the Rose Bowl being presented to delighted Mesdames Stewart and Weeks from ESC&J WI by Devon Federation WI County Chairman Mrs Linda Carew (left).
