Tal­ented cre­aters take sil­ver­ware

Macclesfield Express - - HEART OF THE COMMUNITY -

PRIZES were given to win­ning flow­ers, veg­eta­bles, art and wines at Bolling­ton and Dis­trict Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety’s 51st an­nual show.

There was a va­ri­ety of ex­hibits which also in­cluded cut flow­ers, pot plants and a large chil­dren’s sec­tion, with tro­phies and money prizes to win.

Wendy Stod­dart, chair­man, opened the prize giv­ing and Bolling­ton butcher Jeremy Heath­cote, from JJJ Heath­cote butch­ers and a long time spon­sor of the so­ci­ety, pre­sented the prizes.

He told visi­tors he used to at­tend the show as a young child with his aunt Mar­garet and un­cle Ron Jack­son.

There was a tro­phy in hon­our of Ron on the day and Jeremy said it was an hon­our to present it. The cup, for the best ex­hibit in the shal­lots classes, went to Chris Stubbs.

The Ge­orge Row­botham cup went to Robert Mir­less for the most points in the show. He had a to­tal of five cups home on the day.

Another big win­ner was Au­drey Downes with six cups.

Joyce Bur­ton, show sec­re­tary, said: “In spite of the va­garies of the weather, once again the gar­den­ers pro­duced a won­der­ful ar­ray of flow­ers, fruits and veg­eta­bles.”
