This was held on Saturday 22nd of September in the Town Hall Supper Room Queens Gardens ST Andrews. The show this year was on ground floor level so there were no stairs to climb for exhibitors or visitors.

 

Summer Show  2018

The Summer Show was held on Saturday the 22rd September. There was a slight reduction in beautiful colourful flowers but more wonderful exhibits of vegetables. There was a marked increase of exhibits in the fruit section due to the exceptional summer and also in the vegetable section due to a number of new exhibitors from other areas in Fife. The Club appreciates the expertise and diligence of the various class judges and thanks them for their time.
