2012 Show

The following is the press release.

The 26th Halwill Flower and Produce Show was held on 1st September and, as anticipated, the entries were down on last year by 190. Although 81 schedules were sold, only 38 exhibitors took part (including 8 children). There were one or two new faces and some regulars were absent due to holidays etc. Over 100 people came through the door to view the show in the afternoon and took part in the successful raffle. As usual there was a suggestion sheet available for exhibitors and members of the public, to contribute ideas for next year's schedule and show.

The cups and prizes were presented by Rev. Jane Lucas.
