Success grows on gardeners
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.
