Looking back to this year’s show on September 8th it was the culmination of a lot of hard work by the committee, both old and new members, and we are very grateful to them for all their efforts.

It was also the culmination of a lot of hard work from all our contributors - both young and old - which meant we had some marvellous exhibits that gave a great deal of pleasure to all present.

An innovation was the ‘People’s Choice’ vote for the Showstopper Cake which involved everyone receiving a plastic token to put in a container by each of the six entries. Hannah Byrne’s Lollipop Cake won - which with its plethora of children’s sweets appealed to everyone’s inner child. Congratulations Hannah.

Congratulations to all those who by entering made the event go with a swing - both participants and audience were up on last year - and many thanks to our indefatigable auctioneer, David Hatherell and Chris Colquhoun who presented the following trophies.


Looking forward to next year’s show which will be on SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 14TH we have already met for a wind-down meeting when your suggestions put in the box by the entrance were read and discussed - as were our ‘we could do that better’ thoughts. We are currently planning the schedule for next year which will be in Local Poynz’s summer edition.

2019 will be a rather special year as it will be the Horticultural Show’s 100th Anniversary - so watch this space. As well as prior notice of any classes, such as photography where it is really useful, look on the Local Poynz and Parish Hall websites for details of how we will celebrate.
