Bloom­ing suc­cess­ful show

Halifax Courier - - Southowram Annual Show - By Cassie Irv­ing

Southowram Hor­ti­cul­tural and Al­lot­ments So­ci­ety’s 80th An­nual Show was a bloom­ing suc­cess.

The flower show was held at Within­fields School on Satur­day and at­tracted 534 ex­hibits from 57 ex­hibitors.

There were classes for veg­eta­bles, flow­ers, flo­ral art, cook­ery, chil­dren, crafts and pho­tog­ra­phy.

So­ci­ety chair­man, Arthur Bastide, said: “It was the best show I can re­mem­ber at Southowram. The qual­ity of the ex­hibits was as good as I have seen and, in par­tic­u­lar, the glad­i­oli ex­hibits were ex­cep­tional. Sev­eral of the judges com­mented on the very high stan­dard. Com­pe­ti­tion was re­ally keen, with only two points sep­a­rat­ing the top three ex­hibitors in the hor­ti­cul­ture classes.

“The show was well sup­ported by the public, and I’d like to thank all those who put in a lot of hard work to make the show hap­pen.”
