Scarecrows Show the Way

 

Full size scarecrows and decorated wellies were just two of the intriguing classes at Hethersett and District Horticultural Society’s annual show held in the Village Hall. 

The prize for the best scarecrow, which mounted guard throughout the event at the entrance to the hall, went to Ann Edwards and the best decorated wellie went to youngster Christopher Sidell. 

It was a day to remember for Pauline Harper who took no fewer than six of the top awards including the President’s Cup for Best in Show and the Emily Knights Memorial Trophy for the most points in the vegetable and floral sections. 

The hall was awash with colour thanks to displays of fruit, flowers, cakes and even photographs. There were some colourful floral arrangements on the theme of Ancient and Modern. 

On the fun side there was a class for some very odd looking tomatoes and potatoes in the strangest looking vegetable section and a heaviest marrow section. 

Prizes and cups were presented by chairman of South Norfolk District Council Joe Mooney who paid tribute to the hard work that had gone into the show: 

“This kind of show is a wonderful way of bringing people together. It is good for the village and good for the whole area,” he said.
