Annual Show Report

Annual Open Show September 8th and 9th 2018

The 99th anniversary Annual Show was held at Coronation Hall, Toton. Photos from the show can be seen on the web site, showing the range of exhibits, autumn flowers- dahlias, fuschias, and chrysanthemums ; culinary, jams and wines, and needlework, and including 22 children’s exhibits. The size of the squashes are amazing, as are carrots, beans and sunflower heads. Mammoth begonias, with their beautiful large blooms; collections of various fruits and vegetables, and even bonsai.

The weather forecast gave sunshine and showers and the sunshine drew visitors to view the exhibits, and whether theirs had been awarded a prize. Sunday sunshine drew more visitors, also to try their luck at the tombola and, prize draw. There were plants and books for sale, maybe perused while enjoying refreshments, many cakes being baked and donated by members.

At the close of the show exhibitors can withdraw any being kept, and the remainder, being donated to the club are auctioned . Trophies and awards were to be presented at the members meeting on 18th September.  Being an open show exhibitors don’t need to be a member to enter flowers, vegetables and other items for exhibition; show schedules can be found on the website and downloaded for use.
