2019 Fun Garden & Craft Show

The sun shone brightly on Saturday 14th September at the Pavilion when some 40 competitors brought in their various entries for this year’s Show. There were several new faces plus some faithful participants and it was a delight to see the paintings from the children from Ysgol Cae’r Felin lining the walls as you went in. There were 240 entries as well as many paintings from the school children. It had been a good summer this year and there were some wonderful entries on display, particularly the runner beans. As well as the colourful paintings and drawings there were some very imaginative robots and windmills.

The cup for the most points in the Garden Produce section was awarded to Eric Jones, Dwylan seen here receiving his cup from P&DRG Chairman Stuart Wilson

 

 

 

 

Janet Jones, Dwylan, won the Oliver Evans Trophy for the best entries in the Flower section.

The cup for the most points in the Handicraft Section was won by Edwina Davies, Davies Street, Pencader.

 

 

 

 

The Helen Rose Wilson cup for the highest number of points in the Cookery section was presented to Janet Jones

 

 

 

The trophy for Overall Winner with the highest number of points was won by Janet Jones

 

 

 

The Children’s prize was awarded to Elsi Williams.

 

 

 

 

The Committee would like to thank all those who helped in any way: PIDA for the use of the Pavilion, Premier Stores and Pencader Bakery for the refreshments to keep everyone going, all those who loaned tables and fetched and carried them, the Judges and Stewards for giving up their time, donors of cups and trophies and anyone else who helped towards the event. However our main thanks go to the residents of our Parish who proudly brought their entries to support this community event. Without them there would be no Garden & Craft Show, so thank you and we hope to see you all again next year.

CHAIRMAN’S BLOOMERS

This year instead of a Garden Competition, our Chairman has been watching local  gardens as he has been out and about and certificates will be awarded to those he felt had shown a consistent display of colour.

Best Estate Gardens

Derek James – 55 Maescader
Irene Jones – 18 Maesderwenydd
Pencader

In the general opinion of the judges, there were fewer good displays this year;  watering had been a problem during the very hot spell. There were fewer
good basket displays. Having said that, there were a few highlights, do not be discouraged, try again next year.
