Fruit, veg and flow­ers at Com­rie Hor­ti­cul­tural Show

Veg­eta­bles were the stars of the Com­rie and Dis­trict Hor­ti­cul­tural Show on Satur­day.

Green- fin­gered gar­dener Alan McGre­gor’s labours in his al­lot­ment paid off to bag him the bulk of the prizes at the tra­di­tional vil­lage event.

And new­comer to the show Brian Perks was de­lighted to take the prize for most points in fruit and veg for some­one who has not won a cup be­fore.

Vis­i­tors en­joyed pe­rus­ing the ta­bles of pro­duce as well as flo­ral dis­plays, home bak­ing and crafts in the White Church.

Com­rie and Dis­trict Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety chair­per­son He­len Ste­wart thanked every­one who took part and

all those who had helped to pre­pare the show. She said: “Con­sid­er­ing the sum­mer we have had we did have a good dis­play of veg­eta­bles and flow­ers. We also had good en­tries in the bak­ing.

“The chil­dren that en­tered in their var­i­ous cat­e­gories did very well but we would love to see more young­sters en­ter­ing next year. There are lots of prizes to be won. We also need more en­tries in flo­ral art and pho­tog­ra­phy.

“Thank you to every­one who helps keep the tra­di­tion go­ing in the vil­lage. We are very grate­ful for all the sup­port whether that be at the street mar­ket, lead­ing up to the show, the show it­self or the clean up.”
