It's a busy day and we have professional judges come along to view and place all items entered, even the childrens section. There are strict rules and guidelines to be adhered to.
A great day was had by all even though it was very, very wet outside.
The 6 ply socks won a second place
and the marmalade won a 1st place.
The show benches were full of crafting entries this year
Childrens craft entries were well supported too....
Best in show went to a beautiful cross stitched piece of a bird table, it belongs to a lovely lady and was well deserved.
Trophies are handed out by a local celebrity gardener and radio presenter Ady Dayman. He also auctions off any produce and goods that entrants don't want to take home and half of the proceeds of the day are given to 'Rainbows' a local charity for children with life limiting illness.
A very inventive chap brought along a tyre which he had made into a basket and filled with plants, what a great way to recycle a tyre!
With not being back to full health myself, I had a lot of help from friends on the day who gave up their time to come along and help out to make things easier for me personally. Many thanks to all those who came along and supported us on the day and also my thanks to Clare and Barb who have sent me lovely little notes in the post, its lovely to have such good friends. Clare had a special day all of her own on Saturday.
Now it's time for the craft and knitting groups I belong to put on their thinking caps and start planning for next years entries.
Today, we begin a mini heatwave again for a few days, the weather this September is so strange....
Blessings to you all
