The 46th Horticultural and Village Show took place today, Saturday 12th after a break of 6 years. The day has been so busy with the Open Homes event and launch of Stroud Pound that I only managed too join the show for an hour or so - below are some of the pics (more on the other events coming soon!).
I have to say a huge thank you to the energy of Alan Tomlinson and his team in bringing together this event - it was packed with folks enthusiastically looking at the results and participating in the events. I reckon next year there will be many more participating after this years success.
Entries included men only cherry cake (is that allowed?), various veg and fruit classes, handicrafts, a monster made from fruit and veg for children, various baking classes, photography and painting and so much more - events included dressing a potato person then negotiating an obstacle course leaving him/her intact....proceeds all go towards phase III of the hall development - the kitchen refurb.
