Entries Down - Standards High

It was a case of quality rather than quantity when Hethersett and District Horticultureal Society held its annual show in Hethersett Village Hall. 

Entries were down by 10% due in the main to the year’s difficult growing conditions, but the judges praised the “good standard” of the entries. 

The best exhibit in the show was a plate of tomatoes entered by Pauline Harper. This also won the best exhibit in the vegetable section. Lara Harrold (make a face mask) and Leila Harrold (draw a cartoon character) were winners in the young people’s section and received an engraved plaque. There were sections for both members and non members and visitors to the show were welcomed by another of Dr Anne Edwards’ scarecrow models, this time in the shape of the Queen. 

Judges were Robin Parker (vegetable and fruit classes), Cathryn Waldron and Gloria Bridge (flower, pot plants, arrangements and domestic classes) and Ron Fairbrother (photography and young people’s sections). 

Main prize winners were: President’s Cup and Norfolk and Norwich Horticulturual Society Medal for Best in Show, Pauline Harper; Emily Knights Trophy for most points in vegetable, fruit and flower sections, Pauline Harper; Peter Bond Trophy for runner-up in vegetable, fruit and flower sections, Pauline Bunn; Chairman’s Trophy for best exhibit in vegetable section, Pauline Harper; Charles Tudor Challenge Cup for most points in vegetable section, Pauline Harper; The Deacon Senior Cup for best exhibit in the fruit section, Jean Ramsbottom; The Deacon Junior Cup for most points in the fruit section classes, Pauline Harper; Burton Fanning Silver Challenge Cup of best exhibit in the flower section, Margaret Ford; Silver Challenge Cup for most points in the flower section, John Easton; Benjamin Trophy for best exhibit in the arrangement section, Judy Freeman; Peggy Crowe Memorial Plate for best in photography section, Carol Towells; John Howard Memorial Cup for best exhibit in the domestic section, Lesley Easton; The Abra Trophy for most points in the arrangement and domestic section, Pauline Bunn; The Ethel Hayward Memorial Cup for winner of class of bowl of roses, Carol Towells.
