Northborough Show’s Success

 

The village’s annual Horticultural Show happened last month at the village hall in Northborough, to the anticipation and delight of the many local exhibitors showing the fruits of their labours.

Northborough Community Association members Linda, Karen and Jessie again worked hard to ensure this year’s show was another triumph, appealing to residents of all ages and inspiring innovation, novelty, horticultural expertise and craftsmanship. A slight disappointment this year was the seeming lack of children’s entries, a shame given the normally well-subscribed junior categories most years. Association member Jessie Phillips said: “I ask that parents might encourage their children to get involved in the challenge of creating a model, a painting or growing something to show next year. It’s really great to see the joy on their faces when they actually win, come 2nd or 3rd, with a rosette and certificate. We were very pleased that our ward councillor Peter Hiller judged some categories again this year (with the help of his wife Debbie) and he had the obvious pleasure of awarding the trophies for the successful entries. Without Peter’s support year after year it would be very difficult to stage the show.”
Peter Hiller Trophy (most points in Division 1 and 2 Floral and Vegetables) was awarded to Jenny Knight and Teresa Scott, June Denham Trophy (most points in Division 3 and 4 Preserves and Cookery) was awarded to Jessica Phillips, Division 5 Shirley Picknall, Division 6 (Homemade Wine) Debbie Hiller for her Sloe Gin yet again this year, Division 7 (Children over 7) T. Genovese, (Under 7) Lucy Loades, Division 8 (Men Only) Chris Skillman
