Encouraging Spring Show

The Society held a very successful Spring Show today.  The number of visitors was up as was the number of exhibitors. Despite unforgiving spring weather there were plenty of flowers on show including some excellent daffodils.  The cookery attracted an increase in entries, while the floral art was up to its usual high standard.  Top prize money winners were P. Grimes £12.50, D. Woodcock £11, B. Robinson £11.
