West Moors Horticultural Society Summer Show Report

On Saturday 26th August West Moors Horticultural Society held their Summer show in the Memorial Hall  It was a glorious day and despite being a bank holiday there were numerous visitors through the doors.

Although we have had a difficult growing season we had 430 exhibits or an excellent standard and comments from the judges were very favourable.  Rob Marks won the Dahlia Championship and Bill Howarth the Banksian Medal for most points in Horticultural. The winners for Best in Sections were Dave Manston for Vegetables, Bill Howarth for Fruit, Rosemary Drake for Flowers and Best in all Horticultural, Jean Richardson for Floral Art, Sylvia Barrett for Homecrafts and Denis Richardson for Photography.  It was a show that the members of our society should be proud of.
