Saturday, September 8th dawned at the Pavilion when some 42 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 178 entries as well as some 60 paintings from the school children. It had been an exceptional summer this year and there were some amazing entries on display, particularly the runner beans. The cup for the most points in the Garden Produce section was awarded to Raymond Lewis of Dolgran Road. This was kindly donated by Dr & Mrs Coles
Frances Fuller of Alltwalis won the Oliver Evans Trophy for the best entries in the Flower section. The photo shows her being presented with the shield by Cllr Linda Evans.
The shield for the most points in the Handicraft Section was won by Edwina Davies of Pencader, seen here being presented with the shield by Cllr Linda Evans. The Helen Rose Wilson cup for the highest number of points in the Cookery section was presented to Karen Bowen of Llanfihangel ar Arth. The Overall Winner with the highest number of points was won by Frances Fuller. The Children’s prize was shared between Gwenny Radford and Elsi Williams. Elsi is seen here collecting her trophy from Cllr Linda. Some of the school children with their entries. The Committee would like to thank all those who helped in any way: PIDA for the use of the Pavilion, Premier Stores 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
