DSCF4025.JPG
Under the guiding hand of Show Manager David Brown the 2023 Flower Show proved as popular as ever with 63 exhibitors, of all ages, submitting almost 450 entries.

Thanks, as always, are due to our willing band of volunteers who set up the equipment, help run the show and then pack it all away until next year.
