Prizes galore at village show
PUBLISHED: 16:00 06 September 2012
AN ARRAY of fine fruits, voluminous vegetables and fair flowers picked up prizes at the Banwell Horticultural Show.
The show on Saturday saw a large number of entries despite the poor weather over the summer, and Tony Yarde led the way with five trophies in the vegetable and flower sections.
The event at the village hall in Westfield Road also saw a mouth-watering range of cakes and preserves entered in the domestic section.
Show secretary Jude Long said: “We would like to thank the judges for their time and continuing support.
“Thanks should also go to all those who helped with the setting up and stewarding of the show, their help was much appreciated, and most of all to those who entered (even if it was only one class), without whom none of this would have been possible.”
