Autumn Show 2018: On Saturday 8 September the Village Hall was transformed into a wonderful sight of colours, shapes and textures with entries for the Autumn Show. There were 54 different classes to choose from, producing a broad array of flowers, plants, herbs, foliage, fruit, vegetables, cakes, jams and other goodies, of a very high standard, which demonstrated much care, skill, attention to detail and artistry from the entrants. The judge name xxxx?.. had a hard task making his decisions. The results reflect how close the final marks were, with joint awards for several cups.
