Photos from the day:

What a great show that was. As you would expect from a gathering including many gardeners, no-one was put off by the rain on the day and a good crowd turned up to view 280 entries from more than 60 entrants. The hall looked stunning, and the fruits of all this lovely autumn sunshine were very much in evidence. It was especially good to see more children entering the show, including many entries from St Birinus Primary School.

The committee would like to thank all those who entered and who helped to make the show such a success. Special thanks this year to our new committee member, Candy, and to Dan Duke for his publicity work.
