Report on Kimble and Ellesborough Horticultural Society Summer Show 2019

 

A delightful fragrance and a colourful display of roses and sweet peas greeted visitors to the Summer Show at the Stewart Hall, Little Kimble on Sunday 7th July. There were 95 exhibits on the benches provided by 12 exhibitors. The Show Sub-Committee were pleased to have such quality of exhibits, many of the rose and sweet pea exhibits were of a very high standard. Visitors during the afternoon were appreciative of the exhibits and many enjoyed the cream teas which were on offer again this year.
