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).

Norfolk and Norwich Horticulturual Society Medal for Best in Show, Pauline
