 Many thanks to ALL who took part and helped to make this another successful show. The quality and variety of entries were high with 33 people entering a total of 209 exhibits. There were a few moments of silent reflection for Colin Carter who had been a major contributor to the show and our Auctioneer for many years. Our Auctioneer for this year was Malcolm Newman and £455 was raised for hall funds. Below is a full list of the prize winners and cups and shields awarded at the Show and kindly presented by Brian Sear.
