The Society held their members Show in the Parish Hall on April 5th.There was a most delightful array of spring flowers on show, together with some vegetables and fruit. Judge Roger Austin complimented the Club on putting together such a fine show and Cicely Finnis , who judged the floral art , said she had great difficulty in selecting winners as the exhibits were so good .
The Committee were encouraged to note several new members among the entrants – a sign that the club is thriving.
One member, Sandy Aldridge entering for the very first time discovered she had won prizes for every one of her exhibits. Afterwards she said ‘I can’t believe it . I thought wasn’t good enough’, clearly the judges thought otherwise.
