BECKLEY Horticultural Society attracted double the number of entries on last year for its Summer Show on Saturday.

Frank Nunnely, from the Society, said: “Despite a year of peculiar weather there was hardly room enough on the tables for all the entries. Lots of different people were awarded prizes so they didn’t all go to just a few of the old stalwarts and even people who had never showed before walked off with some firsts.

Ron Juden, the Society’s Chairman said: “It was probably the best supported show for a few years but we’d still like to see more people joining the Society and contributing to the shows - maybe this is the beginning of a big resurgence.”
