Launcells Horticultural Show 2022

Lots of people holding trophies

It was so good to be back after not having a show since 2019! 

Unfortunately the lack of rain and excessive heat over the last few weeks didn’t help the veg and flower growers but there was still a good display with lots of colour and variety. There was an excellent selection of preserves as usual and a lovely display of cakes and biscuits. Lots of photos were entered in the Show too including a class for Parish Councillors (an animal or animals) which was won by Brian Pollard with his photo of a mandarin duck.

It was lovely to see the children’s entries with prizes for best exhibit going to Louise Symons (Under 10s) and Sophia Rosser (10 - 16).

Many thanks to the organisers, helpers and judges and to Maggie Cooper who presented the cups.  Thanks also to everybody who took part in the Show or came along to see all the lovely entries, buy raffle tickets or just came for a chat and a cup of tea and a piece of cake!
