A great spectacle of giant vegetables, beautiful flowers, artwork and photography, baking and preserves was on show. A particularly large number of entries for the industrial section and handicrafts was greatly welcomed.
Many thanks are due to all those who supported the flower show this year. With the real threat of cancellation, Gillian Cassidy stepped in to rally the team of volunteers and Angus Hepburn signed up a host of bakers and helpers for the cafe. A wonderful spread of cakes was donated, and much appreciated by visitors. Thanks, are given to the judges and Walter? Surname for their specialist input and advice so generously and graciously provided year on year. Rhubarb and Lime, the Cross keys, the Inn at Kippen, the Woodhouse, Benview Garden Centre, McNicoll’s shop and Skinner’s butcher are thanked for raffle prizes. Above all, thanks are due to the exhibitors without whom there wouldn’t be a show. It was good to see many people entering for the first time and gaining confidence to make an entry also into the garden competition. Here’s hoping this wonderful, community event will go from strength to strength. Make a note in your diary for August 2020.
We would also like to give a special thanks to Shonah Escombe for all her hard work and dedication in making this show the success that it is.
