Star gardeners reap re­ward

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

BETHERS­DEN gardeners again proved ace grow­ers as they re­tained the Ten­ter­den chal­lenge tro­phy they won last year for the best box of pro­duce. They won the chal­lenge to host the event against five other hor­ti­cul­tural so­ci­eties on Satur­day at the an­nual au­tumn flower, fruit and veg­etable show in the vil­lage hall. Or­gan­iser Joyce Draper re­ported in­creased in­ter­est in the event that was well sup­ported in all classes with top qual­ity veg­etable and flo­ral ex­hibits, and good flo­ral art and home cook­ing en­tries. There was also in­creased sup­port from ju­nior mem­bers in­clud­ing 11-year-old Ashley Buck­ley with a winning cake, and vet­eran Cliff Bur­ton who baked the winning rock cakes. It was no sur­prise that Her­bert Bur­ton was again among the win­ners with his prize-winning leeks.
