Launcells Horticultural Show 2023

Added at 12:15 on 03 September 2023

The Launcells Horticultural Show took place on Saturday 12th August and despite the very hot and dry spring followed by a very wet and windy summer, the growers and makers of the Parish yet again produced a lovely display.

There was an excellent selection of vegetables and a lovely display of cakes and biscuits together with flowers, preserves, crafts and photographs.

Well done to Alison Butler who won a Best Exhibit prize for her beautifully made cushion and to Louise Symons who won best exhibit in the under 10 age section.

Many thanks to the five Parish Councillors who each made 4 biscuits. The winner was Paul Wingard.

Many thanks to all those who took part, the organisers, the volunteers who helped set up and clear away, the judges, the helpers in the kitchen, to Andrew Hargreaves for presenting the prizes and to everyone who came along for a very sociable afternoon.

Let’s hope the weather is kinder to us next year and that perhaps a few more people can enter the 2024 show, especially all the children in the Parish.
