HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY SUMMER SHOW 2015


A view seen as one enters the hall looking along a produce table to some committee
members standing by the stage, with Councillor John White on the extreme right
hand side ready to distribute the afternoons prizes.

ALL THE PICTURES AND MUCH OF THE TEXT ON THIS PAGE WERE PROVIDED TO US BY PAUL HARMAN.
The Point Clear and St Osyth Horticultural Society summer show was held on the 27th July 2014 in the St Osyth village hall. As usual there was an increasingly high standard of produce exhibited and it is a treat just to see it even if you do not have anything to exhibit.


A very good handicraft exhibit


And Ron Osbourne votes for the veg.


The younger members of our community are important to the show as exhibits from
the ‘Toosey Girls' club and the Village School show us all
Their ‘cup-cakes’ entry is above.


It is worth coming just for the raffles. Jim McAree made a bird table to present to the
winner of a special raffle, the other prizes are shown on this raffle table.

‘bird table’ special raffle prize


Christine Chadbourne shows that
flowers are very important


Sue McAree pointing to what she describes
as a choice exhibit


Nicky Underwood is very proud of
her prize winning preserves


Joan Bone's cakes are clearly so tasty that they are lucky to leave the hall uneaten – Just?

We can so easily think of a Horticultural Show being all flowers and how wrong we would be. Flowers Yes, and Fruit and Vegetables Yes, but there are entry categories for almost all other domestic activities that actually make something! All forms of Cookery, Sponges, Scones, Choux pastry, Chocolate Cake, Bread made at home, (including a men only cookery entry), Jams, Chutney, Lemon Curd, Jelly, Knitting including soft toys, casual wear, crochet work, needle work and patchwork. Photographs, possibly one for a Parish Magazine cover. There are special entries for children under 15 years of age - NO definitely not just Flowers! When you read this at home just ask yourself would I like to join in the pleasure of putting an entry in a later show, if you think yes, then come and join us, you will be more than welcome!


Parish and District Councillor John White presented the trophies and prizes at this show.
Pictured here are some of the trophy winners proudly holding their prizes.


These views of the Summer Show were items that caught Paul’s eye. Thanks to him they can catch our eye too! In practice all those members who take the trouble to cultivate entries for the show are Prize Winners themselves, because they make the show such an enjoyable experience for all those who attend . If it is flowers you want to see Click Spring Show to see the flowers exhibited earlier this year. Thank you one and all and very special thanks to Paul Harman for his work we have just viewed!
