Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE - GARETH STOD­DART

SPRING is the time for new be­gin­nings and Bolling­ton and District Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety’s 50th an­niver­sary Spring Show was no ex­cep­tion.

The show not only boasted a great turnout at the civic hall in Bolling­ton, but a whole new lay­out.

Wendy Stod­dart, chair­man of the so­ci­ety, said: “We were very pleased with how the show had gone be­cause we had tried this new lay­out.

“We thought that it had gone very well and ev­ery­one was com­ment­ing on how nice it looked.”

To open the prize giv­ing, Mrs Stod­dart wel­comed ev­ery­one to the show and com­mented on the en­tries sub­mit­ted by chil­dren.

She said: “I hope that you have en­joyed the show and that you are as proud of the chil­dren as we all are.”

She then passed the pro­ceed­ings to the Mayor of Bolling­ton, An­gela Wil­liams, to present the awards.

Mrs Wil­liams said: “Thank you for invit­ing me to present the prizes.

“Five years ago I was priv­i­leged to present the prizes and awards at your Spring Show and I was amazed then at the high stan­dard of all the ex­hibits.

“This year I was even more amazed at what I have seen.

“The judges re­ally, re­ally must have had a dif­fi­cult task in de­cid­ing which were the best items.

“To me the stan­dard of all the ex­hibits is ex­cep­tion­ally high.”

She added: “The chil­dren’s ex­hibits are ab­so­lutely amaz­ing and of a high stan­dard.”

This year, two of the mem­bers of the so­ci­ety, Au­drey Downs and An­gela Barn­shaw, walked away with four cups each.

The chil­dren’s classes was won by Thomas Den­ham Everett.
