Gardeners

This year’s excellent summer enabled the members of the South Normanton Gardeners’ Association to produce a remarkable display of vegetables and flowers at their annual show.

The domestic section had a good number of entries and the children’s section has grown this year.

There were some excellent entries in the special class; making a walking stick from a Jersey cabbage stem while entries to the handicraft section were as skilful as ever.

The hall at the Post Mill Centre was a riot of colour with a wonderful display of fuchsias, dahlias and other flowers.

Cream teas proved to be very popular while the bottle tombola and plant stall helped raise funds for future meetings. At the end of the day much of the produce was auctioned off by our chairman Nigel Needham.

Trophies were awarded to the following:

Most points in vegetable section - Kevin Kavaliunas; most points in pot plant section - June Hardy; most points in flower section - Pauline Holmes; most points in horticultural sections - joint Kevin Kavaliunas and Pauline Holmes; most points in domestic section - Maureen Parkin; best vegetable in show - John Goodall; best flower exhibit Ron Froggatt; best flower arrangement - Sue Holmes; best exhibit in domestic section - Helen Walland.
