Autumn 2007 Newsletter

Summer Show
St. Nicholas Church Centre proved once again to be an excellent place to hold the show with ample parking and good facilities. In spite of the wet and cold weather we had earlier, the summer show was a great success, with good standards of produce in all classes except dahlias. There were 235 class entries from 31 members and over 100 visitors coming to see the show. Geoff would like to thank all the judges, stewards and all the committee members for their help. A special thanks goes to Laurie & Janet Pannell, Vivienne’s family, Maureen & Rex Ballard-Neale, Stuart Swain and Malcolm Johnson.
