Lerryn and District Produce Association 64th Annual Produce Show
It's never a certainty that the opening of the Memorial Hall doors in Lerryn will bring a surge of activity, but once again the keen vegetable and flower growers of the district were impatient to show off their prowess - along with those entering the food and decorative classes. The hustle and bustle and coming and goings of the entrants kept up right until the 10.30 deadline, when the atmosphere gave way to the serious considerations of the judges. After much prodding, smelling and tasting, the deliberations were finalised and the winners recorded. The judges remarked that it had been another successful year with a very high standard of entries.
A big thank you to Councillor Benedicte Bay who opened the show to a packed hall accompanied by the melodic music of our house band Anything Goes, who made the proceedings go with a swing. Cream teas went like hot cakes and raffle tickets were dug out of pockets, while silver cups were bestowed on worthy winners.
The prizewinners included:
Marie Farey (Most Points In Show)
Alan Worswick (Cornish Garden Society Award – Gold)
Pat Bucknell (Cornish Garden Society Award – Silver)
John Hancock (Best Bloom In Show)
Thanks to all of you who entered your produce into this year’s show – it makes such a difference to see the hall packed with good things. So, now with the show over it's time to pour yourself a drink, get the deckchairs out, put your feet up and bask in the glory of your garden for another year.
Until the next time…
