Gardeners’ Association show

FLOWERS, fruit, vegetables and floral art will all be on display at the Barkwith and District Gardeners Association’s evening show to be held in the village hall on Friday September 2 and visitors are invited to go along and view the exhibits after judging is completed.

Members of the Association and residents living within a ten mile radius of the village can enter and the exhibits can be staged on the day of the show from 7pm until 7.45pm.

Tea and biscuits will be available in the committee room while the hall is closed during judging and entertainment will be provided with a gardening theme, with a raffle run by Yvonne Bryson too.

There are 26 classes and floral art enthusiasts are asked to interpret a popular West End Musical, an arrangement using driftwood and display a container of flowers and foliage.

There will be a presentation of awards at the close including the Hugh Noble Rose Ball for the exhibitor with the most points in the flower section, the Betty Horton Challenge Cup for the most points in the vegetable and fruit section and the Barry Denny Trophy for the floral art winner.

The owner of the best dahlia in the show will be awarded the Ernie Smith Memorial Trophy, the owner of the best flowering pot fuchsia will be presented with the Margaret Fairbank Memorial Trophy and there will be special prizes for the grower of the longest runner bean and the heaviest marrow.
