Spring Show 2022

Posted on

What a delight that the sun shone for our first Spring Show in two years!  How good it felt to be back meeting with friends and neighbours in the Memorial Hall.  Viewing the fabulous exhibits and catching up on news over tea and cake.

Congratulations to all participants, a total of 120 entries made for a great exhibit when the doors opened in the afternoon.  Cookery classes were well represented with everything from loaves of bread through to beautiful Simnel Cakes and jars of chutney.  The colourful array of spring flowers was truly stunning.  Stately narcissi and pretty posies in jam jars all contributing to the display.  Bright red sticks of rhubarb sat alongside trays of lettuce plants next to the always popular children’s entries.  There were some wonderful drawings of The Queen, an excellent crown, models, Easter cards, Easter gardens and cookery – well done to all the children for participating.

Special congratulations to the cup prize winners and sincere thanks to all those that made it happen.  It was good to be back on track, something of a warm up for the Summer Show.
