At the 53rd Horticultural Show in the Parish Hall, Golberdon, there was a very good display of vegetables, cut flowers and pot plants in spite of the abundance of slugs and snails in everyone’s garden. The cookery classes were excellent, beautiful floral displays to admire, handicrafts and photography. Competition was brisk in most classes. There was keen competition for the trophy for most points won by Lilian Jones, who entered 29 classes. After viewing all the exhibits, there were cream teas to be enjoyed. The weather in the afternoon was ideal, with many local people coming to enjoy the event.
The day’s events concluded with the presentation of trophies by David and Sarah Short, who congratulated the committee and all exhibitors for a wonderful show.
David and Sarah were presented with a basket of fruit by Darcy and Tobias Easton.
There were 350 entries from 58 exhibitors.
