Downpour fails to dampen Stourport show
STOURPORT Horticultural Society showgoers had to make the most of a sunny Sunday as a “great” weekend was cut short by a downpour.
On the Sunday thousands of spectators came out to Riverside Meadows to enjoy more than 150 classes as well as exhibitions and stalls but heavy rain put off some people from venturing out on the Bank Holiday Monday.
Organiser Angela Phillips said it was a shame but everyone had enjoyed it on the Sunday.
“It did go very well and Sunday was lovely,” she said. “We had a lot of people come into the marquee and the exhibits were outstanding but on Monday, unfortunately, hardly anybody came down so a lot of the stalls finished early which was a shame.
“We are coming back next year though.”
The show also saw trampolines, garden ornaments, children’s classes, cooking and vegetables as well as bric-a-brac and a raffle to raise money for the society.
There were more than 30 prizes handed out including the cooking classes won by Ruby Sandall and the handicraft section won by Barbara Beasley. Gary Phillips won best in show for produce and John Boswell had the best exhibit of chrysanthemums.
