How the weather can change! Last year, we sweltered during the summer show. This year, we had occasional cloudbursts during an otherwise grey and somewhat cool August day last Saturday. The weather had not helped throughout the growing season, either, but a sufficient number of Tarvin's gardeners had been successful, despite the weather, and succeeded in putting on a really good display of produce and items from their pantry, with a significant number of children entering the young peoples' classes, also.
Tarvin Gardening Society were fortunate to have our new Borough Councillor, Cllr Ted Lush, to present all of the trophies, of which there are ten. He appears on all of the following photos of the presentations, which were taken by Keith Barker. We were fortunate to have Keith on hand, because his eye for a photograph clearly shows! Thank you, Keith.
