Autumn Show 7 September 2013 (View the gallery)

The sun was shining on the annual Autumn Show and many visitors came to enjoy the display of vegetables, fruit, flowers , flower arrangements, a great variety of cakes and bread and good quality photos of all sorts of garden sheds, it was a good opportunity for members and guests from many different villages to come together to exchange experience or have a chat over a cup of tea and a piece of cake. Towards the end of the show the President, Brig. M Atherton gave out the cups and thanked the Committee for their work and the visitors for supporting the Society.

Summer Show 6 July 2013 (View the gallery)

Our Summer show was much enjoyed by everybody despite the fact that the entries of vegetables and fruits were very low for obvious reasons. The judges praised the high standard of entries and were impressed with the good organisation of the show. Vistiors enjoyed the colourful display as well as a cup of tea and a piece of home-made cake. Take a look at some of the photos in the gallery.
