SUMMER SHOW 2019

The Show was held downstairs in the Supper Room of the Town Hall in Queens Gardens. Despite a number of hiccups in the arrangements prior to the show it all came right on the day and we held a very successfull show. The numbers of exhibits was down slighly probably due to the variable growing weather this year. The quality of the vegetables however was once again outstanding, a credit to the local growers to whom the committee raise their combined hats.Thanks again from the committee to all exhibitors and visitors.
