Flower and Produce Show 2015
The sun shone on the Wanborough Show this year but it was even brighter inside the Flower and Produce tent. The tent was festooned with colourful bunting and awash with over 530 eye-catching exhibits ranging from majestic gladioli to showstopping cakes and amazing large onions to some beautiful arts and craft work. The number of high quality exhibits entered by over 80 people reflected the popularity and competitiveness of the Flower and Produce Show.
The tent was brightened further by the squeals of delight, lit up faces and broad grins that ensued when entrants found the much sought after prize cards next to their exhibits and showed them off to friends and family. It is extraordinary how uplifting a simple rectangle of red card with ‘First Prize’ on it can be!
A number of interesting and fun mobile gardens adorned the entrance to the tent. This was a new competition this year and was the subject of much discussion and interest. We will be doing it again next year. So look out for those mobile objects that you can turn into a garden in 2016. The show was so successful because of the support of the local community and an increasing number of visiting participants from surrounding areas who are willing to share their creativity, skill and imagination with us.
As well as this, the cheerful and efficient band of helpers, who make the ‘Green Tent’ run like clockwork, should be given a huge pat on the back for their time and effort in making it a great, traditional flower and produce show.
We are already looking forward to 2016 and planning new classes for you to enter. Watch this space!
