Summer Show Results 2018

Our thanks go to all who volunteered to help set up the hall early on Saturday morning. It helped us off to a good start and all went well for the rest of the day.

Entries were down 20% on last year, largely due to the difficult growing conditions this year. The cold, wet start followed by the continuing drought made things difficult for growers. However, this cannot be used as an excuse for the culinary and craft classes which were also down by almost a third.

Despite this, the show was colourful and presented plenty of interest for all.
