THE dis­play board in the res­i­dent’s din­ing room at the Biggen­den Multi Pur­pose Health Ser­vice is now over­flow­ing with prize cards.

At the re­cent Biggen­den Show the res­i­dents en­tered 104 en­tries in the var­i­ous classes in­clud­ing craft, cook­ing flow­ers, flo­ral art and veg­eta­bles.

Recre­ational of­fi­cer Michelle Kin­bacher said the res­i­dents had bagged 59 prizes along with two cham­pi­onships.

“Th­ese were for their jam and chrysan­the­mums,” she said.

“They were so ex­cited about the wins and re­ceived the Glenda Brock­way Memorial Tro­phy for most points in one of the sec­tions.”

With their prize­money the res­i­dents will pur­chase some more roses for their gardens.

Mrs Kin­bacher said they would also in­vest in some qual­ity cake tins for their fu­ture cook­ing.

Res­i­dent, Marj Rollinson said ev­ery­thing was a team ef­fort.

“I re­ally en­joy the in­ter­ac­tion with other res­i­dents dur­ing the cook­ing,” she said.

Fel­low res­i­dent Keith Wein­holz likes mak­ing jam and pickles.

“I also en­joy do­ing the stir­ring and watch­ing the how it turns out,” he said.

Af­ter a week’s spell, the res­i­dents are busy this week mak­ing a pump­kin fruit cake and a steamed pud­ding for the up­com­ing Tee­bar Show.
