Annual Produce Show
Monday 12th August 2013
LERRYN AND DISTRICT PRODUCE ASSOCIATION
The 63nd Annual Produce Show
Saturday, August 3rd
The doors of Lerryn Memorial Hall opened early to get this years’ show under way – and soon a steady stream of entrants with their exhibits were filling the hall with the wonderful smell of freshly cut vegetables and home baking.
Despite the variable weather conditions this year, with early flowering in some cases, and late harvesting still to come, the display tables filled up with a variety of produce from the garden and kitchen. The village hall had come to life with the vibrant colours of the blooms and the imagination of the children’s scary vegetable monsters.
So, the stage was set for the 63rd Lerryn Produce Show and the arrival of the judges started the challenging task of choosing the best in class and the most eyecatching craft skills in the creative and decorative classes.
The show was opened by Canon John Halkes and the afternoon was enjoyed by a packed hall – all to the sounds of our resident musicians, Anything Goes, who provided the atmosphere to accompany cream teas and complete this relaxed and enjoyable afternoon.
The day ended with Canon John Halkes presenting cups and awards.
The Prizewinners included:
Marie Farey (Most points in Show)
Brian Philp (Cornish Garden Society Award - Gold)
Pat Bucknell (Cornish Garden Society Award – Silver)
John Philp (Best Bloom in Show)
Canon John Halkes congratulates this years' prizewinners.

In the class of Best Young Gardener, the George Keast Memorial Shield was awarded to Perran Lutey, for the growing of strawberry plants that were given to Lerryn School by the Produce Association earlier in the year.
Once again, thank you to everyone who made this years’ show a success; to the entrants, who grow and bake and shape, and the dedicated hard work of the committee and to everyone who came along to support the day and celebrate another successful show.
