Dal­beat­tie Civic Flower Show

The Galloway News - - DALBEATTIE CIVIC FLOWER SHOW -

The Dal­beat­tie Civic Flower and Pro­duce Show was held in the town hall on Sun­day, Au­gust 26.

The show, which was opened by Mr Tommy Henderson was a tremen­dous suc­cess with more than 600 ex­hibitors, show­ing an amaz­ing ar­ray of flow­ers, veg­eta­bles and crafts with the usual com­peti­tors vy­ing to ac­quire the tro­phies.

There was a su­per dis­play in the flower and pot plant sec­tion and the bak­ing sec­tion was also well sup­ported, mak­ing judg­ing very dif­fi­cult.

The flo­ral art sec­tion saw some beau­ti­ful ar­range­ments and in the arts and crafts there was a splen­did show of tal­ent with two new classes added this year, up­cy­cled ma­te­rial and me­tal­work.

The chil­dren’s sec­tion show­cased some amaz­ing cre­ations and or­gan­is­ers were pleased to see the show is look­ing se­cure for fu­ture years.

The paint­ing classes had few en­tries in each class, de­spite there be­ing so many tal­ented artists in the re­gion so it was rather dis­ap­point­ing but the pho­tog­ra­phy sec­tion al­ways pro­duces some lovely pic­tures.

And as usual the walk­ing sticks, horn lamps and wooden items had some beau­ti­ful work on dis­play.

Judg­ing is never easy and or­gan­is­ers would like to thank them for mak­ing those dif­fi­cult de­ci­sions.

The over­all win­ner with the most points this year (de­spite hav­ing said she would pos­si­bly not be en­ter­ing as many classes as in pre­vi­ous years) was once again Lorna Mur­ray. Her en­thu­si­asm and sup­port for the show is to be com­mended.

Mr Henderson pre­sented the prizes, ably as­sisted by Civic Queen Ciara McQuarry.
