The Peach family’s wind chime swept the board in this year’s popular vote section. Their tinkling metal concoction made from cutlery, a metal wine goblet and a sieve (or was it a bit of vegetable basket?) hit the right note for voters. However it was a strong field, with Tony Debney’s ‘Drinking Man’s Chime’ a runner up, closely followed by two chimes on a seaside theme (one, which came with its own design statement, featuring salvaged Kinder egg toys found on a beach in Dorset).
Some highly imaginative posters for the new community stores were a highlight of the Junior entries. These will be used for the shop launch in the autumn. We also had the youngest-ever winner of the Joan Sheard Cup, which went to six-year old Harriet Inwood for her ‘Pick of the Crop’ entry: a wonderful wiggly carrot and bright red nasturtium flower.
We were very pleased to welcome Ann Linton to the Produce Show committee this year. We extend our warmest thanks to our sponsors, Busy Baskets and Winterbrook Garden Services, and our volunteer judges; also to all those who helped on the day – by providing drinks, advice or table-moving muscle, or simply by entering.
