The children’s categories were popular too with entries of monsters made of fruit or vegetables, seed heads on a paper plate, miniature garden in a seed tray and flapjacks.

Eight-year-old Lizzie Allerton entered one of the adult classes of floral art and beat her mum Marion, quite an achievement. Prizes were awarded at the end of the show.

Sally Grant went home with a handful of awards, winning the coveted Banksian Medal for most prize money in the Cut Flowers and Fruit and Vegetables categories, The Challenge Cup for most prize money overall and the Willet Cup for most prize money for Fruit and Vegetables.

Tracey Caines received the cup for most prize money for Cut Flowers, Steve Parr, the Harold Roberts cup for Best Exhibit in Fruit and Vegetables with his superb carrots.

Pat Harris was awarded the De Mahe Cup for most prize money in Floral Art and also the Certificate of Merit in Floral Art.

Zoe Skinner and Sheila McDougal tied on points and will share the County Cup for most prize money in the cookery category.

Zoe was one of the new competitors and produced some delicious focaccia bread and sausage rolls.

Lizzie Allerton once again won the S E Cook junior trophy and Ruby Caines, ten, received the People’s Choice certificate for her monster made from fruit.

Joy Cole had a fantastic display of alstroemeria and was awarded the Diploma for Best Exhibit in Flowers.

The association would like to thank everyone who supported the show and made it such an enjoyable afternoon and hope that history will keep repeating itself for many years to come.

The spring show takes place in April.
