Suc­cess grows on gar­den­ers

Macclesfield Express - - HEART OF THE COMMUNITY -

GROW­ERS dis­played the best of their crops at Bolling­ton and Dis­trict Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety and Flower Club’s 52nd an­nual show.

The event saw en­tries from keen gar­den­ers and artists in a va­ri­ety of com­pe­ti­tions.

Michael Chad­wick of Chad­wicks newsagents pre­sented 30 tro­phies to the win­ners. The Ge­orge Row­botham Cup for the most points in the show was won by An­gela Barn­shaw and the all-im­por­tant Macclesfield Ex­press Cup for the long­est run­ner bean went to Mark Pow­ers.

Pauline Pedler, from the so­ci­ety, said: “It was another colour­ful and suc­cess­ful show at Bolling­ton Civic Hall.

“The Ju­nior Cup was won by Joe Wain­wright for most points in the chil­dren’s sec­tion.

“Jack Lynes and Frank Beard im­pressed ev­ery­one with their cacti.

“Jack won a 1st prize for a beau­ti­ful big cac­tus, which he had man­aged to keep in bloom for the day of the show.

“As al­ways, a fea­ture of the show was the ar­ray of de­li­cious home-made cakes to buy as re­fresh­ments or take home.”

The So­ci­ety holds meet­ings at 7.30pm on the 3rd Thurs­day of each month at Bolling­ton Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.
