If the produce show is anything to go by, Brightwell seems to get greener by the year. There were strong entries in all the flower and vegetable classes, and it was great to see such a good showing from allotment holders. The Swan Allotment Cup, which is judged in the week before the show, went to Paul Copley for his immaculate and very productive plot. The men seemed to carry it all away in the cookery section. Roy Thorpe won first prize for his handmade loaf, and Oscar Devey-Robson and Nathan Butterfield swept the board for their machine made bread. Nathan also won the Joan Sheard trophy, awarded for the first time this year to an under-16 year old entering in adult classes. In fact the Butterfield family altogether made a pretty impressive showing, with Amelia and Camilla winning both junior trophies.
If the produce show is anything to go by, Brightwell seems to get greener by the year. This year’s experiment with lowering the upper age limit in junior classes, and encouraging junior entries in adult classes seems to have worked. We had good entries in all sections, with some very colourful 80th birthday cards and crowns for the Queen and some particularly lovely collages made by Allsorts Preschool children from leaves and twigs. We really appreciate their support, and all the hard work put in by parents of all junior entrants who have to clear up the mess resulting from these creative efforts. Shena Luck won the Talbot Cup, with Rose Sutton runner up. This cup is awarded on a points system, with a point for every entry and extra points for prizes. It may not be won by the same person for two years running, and it is to Shena’s credit that she still puts in an impressive spread of entries even in years when she is not allowed to win the trophy!
