Our Autumn Show for 2018 was held on Sunday 9th September. There was a big turnout of volunteers to set up the gazebos and tables and to tidy it all away again. At one point one of the gazebo frames looked a bit like a confused maypole dance, but it all came together in the end.
There were some really delicious refreshments (thanks to all our cooks!) and another thrilling snail race at the end of the day. Unclaimed exhibits went into the “hedge veg” box by the main gate, and quickly disappeared.
Results of the judging:
- Joe Foster 27
- Rosie Hall 25
- Peter Blakey 15
Best in Show: Peter Blakey’s red cabbage
Joe Maiden Cup: Jo Ann Eisenberg
Some of the winning exhibits were from newcomers – it wasn’t all just the usual old-timers.
Gillian did the judging in our usual informal Hollin Lane way, explaining what she was looking for in each class and giving useful tips about growing and showing things from her own long experience as a gardener and exhibitor.
Many thanks to everyone who helped make the day a success.
