North Petherton Flower Show results 2013
NORTH Petherton’s 110th Annual Flower Show saw a packed hall of visitors enjoy fantastic displays of fruit, vegetables, flowers and crafts.
The show was opened by Barbara Childs, who has been judging the flower classes at the show for the last twenty years, ably assisted by her friend, Audrey.
Show secretary Vanessa Leighton said: “The number of entries in the flower and vegetable classes were a little down on recent years, due to the very poor growing season.
“The cookery, handicraft, photography and children’s classes were very well supported; with exhibits of such high quality judging was very difficult.
“Many visitors stayed for tea and cakes which made the occasion an ideal opportunity to meet up with friends old and new and add to the community spirit which the Flower Show is trying to promote in the town.
“It was a lovely day with a great atmosphere, lots of visitors and really good exhibits.”
