Fine weather greeted a good gathering of people to the annual Flower and Dog Show on Saturday, August 31. There were a lot of entries in the Dog Show which is always a popular event on the day. Flower Show entries were a bit down on previous years, possibly a combination of the growing year and the show being held a week earlier than in previous years, with some people who may have entered still away on holiday, however all the entries were up to the usual high standard.
At the end of the afternoon the twelve cups and trophies were awarded to the deserving winners.
