This year's Annual Show saw 72 exhibitors entering the Open Classes and 18 entering the special Children's Classes.
After a decline in entrants over the past few years we were particularly pleased to see the number of children participating recover to the sort of numbers we had in 2009/10, with 18 individuals entering 88 classes in total.
The overall number of exhibits in the open classes was also slightly up on the past couple of years at 546, although at 72 the number of open class exhibitors was quite a bit down on last year, which had almost matched the peak of recent years when 95 individuals participated in 2009.
However, a variety of factors affect the number of entries, including the point in the school holidays or term when the first Saturday in September falls and also, of course, for the horticultural classes, what the weather has been like during the year!
In addition, in the children's classes, it is usually the case that a couple of previously regular entrants become too old to compete.
The number of visitors held up well, indicating that the show is still a popular community event, and overall there were lots of favourable comments. People seemed to enjoy themselves as always with a wide range of classes to provide something of interest for everyone.
