Summer Show, 6th August 2011

The show was held at the popular venue of St. Nicholas Church Centre, Bedhampton. The show attracted slightly less entries than last year due to the unusually hot weather in April. However, the standard of the vegetable entries was commendable and there was a good variety of flowers, particularly in the dahlia section.

The photographic section was very well supported and of high standard giving the judge a difficult task in deciding the winners. The show proved popular with members of the gardening community as we had a very good showing of visitors. There was a good report about the Show in the News of Tuesday 9th August with a photograph of Peter Rogers.

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, supporters and helpers for making the Show such a success.
