Summer Show 2015 - Report

July 11, 2015


As an administrative exercise, the show was a great success.  Stephen Rickard won the Crawley Cup for his cookery which is the first time a man has won the cup in my knowledge. (Later discovered not the first, but certainly the first for quite some time !)   The hot dry weather took a toll on the entries although the fruit was particularly strong.  It was good to see John North entering his sweet peas.  Angie Page won the Floral Art cup for the first time which delighted her.  Carole Duke has become a serious competitor & swept the board with the high standard of her exhibits.


The Bovingdon Primary Academy through their cookery & gardening clubs supported the show with 47 entries.


The Pottery Club put on a display of their fine work.  Our thanks go to the enthusiasm of Glenys & the pottery teacher for all their work in getting the entries & exhibits into the hall.
