A very big thankyou to all of you who visited the Show and Sustainability Fair on Saturday (16-2-13). Despite the forcast, the tree covered grounds were put to good use by visitors and under the shade was quite lovely.
There were 250 entries in Photograpy and 103 in Jams and Preserves the highest number for both convenors. The floral art section was the biggest for some time and pot plant entries increased from 22 last year to 70!
