Tasty treats in spot­light at Tay­val­lich flower show

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A BUSY evening at Tay­val­lich flower show saw a fine dis­play of hor­ti­cul­tural tal­ent from both young and old.

The show, held on Wed­nes­day Au­gust 9, was well sup­ported with plenty of en­tries but it was the bak­ing sec­tion that proved par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar, with many short­bread and sponge cake en­tries to be judged.

In the lead up to the show, the com­mit­tee has been en­cour­ag­ing pupils at the Tay­val­lich Pri­mary School to de­velop their gar­den­ing skills with classes in grow­ing pota­toes, sun­flow­ers and marigolds. This went some way to en­sur­ing that the chil­dren’s en­tries were ex­cel­lent, mak­ing it im­pos­si­ble in the end to separate three joint win­ners of the School Tro­phy.

The auc­tion by Roly MacArthur of do­nated ex­hibits at the end of the evening was highly suc­cess­ful, rais­ing £562 with all show prof­its go­ing to sup­port Tay­val­lich Vil­lage Hall.

Cup win­ners: flow­ers and plants – Mary McLauch­lan; flo­ral ar­range­ments – Mary McLauch­lan; vegetables and fruit – Bob Moyes; bak­ing and pre­serves – Jane Al­lan; Bak­ing Salver – Mary McLauch­lan; pre­serves – Jane Al­lan; Rose Bowl – Lorna MacKel­lar; Minnie Munro Tro­phy for Short­bread – Mary McLauch­lan; pho­tog­ra­phy – Sor­ley Self; School Cup joint win­ners – Iris MacMil­lan, Molly Lazen­bury and Lewis Oswald.
