2019 Show

4th Annual Show and Open Day,

Beautiful cakes. Very popular. The whole lot got eaten at the end of the show.

Coffee hut
The refreshment shed. Waiting for the show judging to be done so the cakes can be enjoyed with cups of tea and coffee
Tomatoes and carrots
A very impressive selection of tomatoes and carrots.

Three cucumbers keeping a safe distance from each other.
