Bewdley & District Horticultural Society Show 2018

Hello Everyone,

Well, the show has been and gone and to according to many conversations and reports it went really rather well. I say this because of several reasons: our judges for the Flowers, fruit and vegetables were of one opinion; this has been one of the most difficult growing seasons ever. From a brutally cold winter, you’ll remember the “beast from the east”, to a very late spring that catapulted us into one of the hottest summers and prolong drought for years. After all this our exhibitors managed to produce excellent produce in all classes. We are grateful to our main growers in these sections; as without them the show would be greatly reduced. Once again our other judges in the domestic , handicrafts, children and photography/art and finally floral art were all impressed with the consistently high levels of achievement.

At this point we say well done to all competitors for a great effort.

What really needs to be said now is a huge thank you to everyone who helped in the show preparation: our committee over the year met on many occasions to plan the Schedule, invite Judges, organise the advertising, report to members, book the Hall, etc .etc. But our members were also involved, we had helpers everywhere, organising the tombola, organising the door for admission, stewarding Judges, organising and selling cakes, chaperoning the Mayor and Mayoress, providing nourishment for others, selling of flowers and plants, helping with the auction and finally clearing the Hall at the end of the day. To everyone that helped before or on the day or sponsored a class, or helped by being a member of our little society, Thank You and Thank You again.

The Committee will meet again shortly to look at what we did well, what we could do better, what we might do differently and what we might have missed. It’s important to have these discussions while everything is still fresh in our minds.

So, if you have comments that you might want to talk about please preferably write back to me or mention it at the next meeting.

Thanks again
