Blooming good show for Bewdley horticultural society
9:30am Friday 16th August 2013 in Local
IT was a blooming good show for the Bewdley and District Horticultural Society as more than 550 people visited the renovated St George’s Hall.
The annual fruit, vegetable and flower show was the first event held in the hall after its refurbishment.
One of the organisers Diane Chater said: “It was our best show for many years and just showed that with all the other attractions in and around Bewdley that weekend people are still interested in looking round a traditional horticultural show.”
The society used the first floor of the hall to show off their flowers and vegetables and the domestic classes, including handicrafts, were displayed in the new Severn Room.
Mrs Chater added: “St. George’s Hall was just a perfect venue for our show, especially now that they have a lift and a lovely new community run cafe setting that people can stop and enjoy some homemade cake and a cup of tea.”
The George Williams cup for the best exhibit of roses went to Tom Hall as did the EA Hughes Memorial cup for most points in classes 18 to 30.
The Clift cup for best exhibit in class 68 went to Adam Greathead for his collection of vegetables, who also won the CRG Farmer cup.
The Bewdley Floral Art Society also put on an exhibition depicting famous perfumes through the ages.
Roger Key, vice-chairman of St George’s Hall Venue Management said: “I am particularly delighted that we were able to open with a community event.”
