Summer Show, 7th August 2010

The show was held on Saturday 7th August at the popular venue of St. Nicholas Church Centre, Bedhampton. The show attracted more than 240 entries, more than last year despite the difficult season. The dahlia and rose sections were particularly pleasing. The show proved popular with members of the gardening community as we had a very good showing of visitors in spite of the weather and four more gardeners joined the Society. There was a very good report about the Show in the News of Tuesday 10th August. Thanks go to Geoff Tanton, Show Manager, Mrs Maureen Ballard-Neale, Entries Secretary, and the rest of the team for organising this enjoyable event. And thanks to all exhibitors, judges and supporters, without you the show wouldn’t go on at all!
