HORTICULTURAL SUMMER SHOW 2012


On Saturday 23rd June it was time for the Horticultural Society’s Summer Show. The very expression ‘Summer Show’ brings a wry smile to people’s faces as our summer has yet to arrive and we are still being deluged with heavy rainfall and cold winds. We hear technical explanations that the upper atmospheres Jet Stream has shifted significantly to the south of the UK, instead of being well above the British Isle, but our gardeners must soldier on regardless!
All the above being said we still managed to end up with some magnificent entries to our show this year and a good attendance throughout the afternoon expressing their personal pleasure with the exhibits.
A particular exhibit that caught most visitors eye was the collective efforts of the Special Flower Arranging Class of “Toosey Girls Club” and their ten floral ‘Union Jacks’ of which four are shown below.













As usual winning entries; 1st, 2nd and 3rd received and envelope holding their prize money, but as the trophies on the table above show some entries competed for ‘silver ware’ to reward their efforts














For this show the Committee invited Michael Bareham to present the prizes to winning entries. Michael and his family had owned and run the butchers shop on The Bury for many years until quite recently, so Michael knew personally the majority of the prize winners he congratulated with a handshake, some of whom he even went to school with! The presentation panel above from the left are Kevin Jackson, Michael Bareham, Nicola Underwood and Christine Harman. Our Chairman Dulcie Evans is sitting next to Christine.



The weather has not been kind, but it seems to have spurred exhibitors on to beat the rain and make it a good show. Point Clear and St Osyth Horticultural Society can truly be proud, with their committee and show helpers, who make our three Annual Shows events of importance to all!
