Ward End Gardeners Association Shows for 2015

Annual Flower & Vegetable Show 29th July 2015

Flower & Veg show 2015

The usual anticipation on the run up to the show, would the weather break will anyone enter had the judges been given the right detail date/time etc.

No worries the infrastructure was all in place by Thursday and show bench’s were ready and marked out.

Friday was free to collect and clean exhibits collecting flowers Gladioli were cut early and had spent the last week in the poly tunnel.

Saturday Mick, Eddie & Brian put out the last of the tables as soon as we opened the pavilion exhibits arrived and we had more entries per person than we expected and a quality that we have not had for a number of years staging closed at 12.00 noon and because of the unforeseen volume of entries what normally took 2 hours took over 3 hours because the show benches are in three sections we could close one section at a time between judges and public.

The flower marquee was the most competitive I have seen for years with great debate on the judges decisions and likewise with the vegetable section with every point being well won. More children entered this year and the ladies section was well supported.

The weather was kind once again and everyone enjoyed themselves.
Thank you, to everyone who took part in exhibiting or working it was a great success.
