Flower show proved a great draw
Wednesday, 08 August 2012
ON a day that delivered much Olympic excitement, Stoke Climsland on Saturday held its own exciting event — the annual flower show!
It attracted exhibitors from the village and area in a wide range of classes. As ever, the competition was hot and the standards high, the marquee was full and there was even sun.
Display tables were laden with garden produce, baking and handicrafts. In some classes, entries were down, possibly due to the poor growing conditions, but in others, such as photography they were up on previous years.
Additional entertainment was provided by Launceston Town Band, Emazdad the Magician and children’s sports events.
Cream teas were available throughout the afternoon in the parish hall.
In total, 37 cups were awarded to the keen competitors, presented by this year’s presidents Cmdr and Mrs Bill Watson.
Notable winners included young Thomas Barriball who won cups for most points, best entry and best vegetables in the under 16 years classes. Jenny Llewellyn also won three cups for most points in dairy classes, wine classes and fruit classes. Pat Cox won cups for both her large garden and her vegetable garden, Jean Philp won most points and best exhibit in open needlework classes and Bonita Lightfoot won most points in both local and open cookery classes.
Richard Vulliamy won with the best collection of vegetables, best cider and shared the best wine entry cup with Stepen Pryor who also won the best Beer. A full list of cup winners is available from Ruth Nevill firstname.lastname@example.org
