STUDLEY put on a fantastic display at its annual Flower Show last Saturday, August 31.
Held at Studley Sports and Social Club, a mid-afternoon cloud burst failed to the dampen spirits of a large crowd of people enjoying all the attractions as judging took place.
These included swingboats, disco, a raffle and tombola and cake sales while Studley Scouts did a roaring trade selling hotdogs and beefburgers with veggie options too.
Inside, judge John Ellison spent plenty of time looking at the many exhibits – the most in many a year – assisted by the hardworking team from award-winning Studley in Bloom.
“It’s not been a great year for growers but in the circumstances – June was not a kind month – the gardeners of Studley have done very well indeed,” said Mr Ellison, a regular judge at local shows who started gardening himself aged just 13.
He singled out the beetroot and onions as particularly good and said the runner beans had done exceptionally well too.
Parish Councillor Brian Dixon said: “It’s been another wonderful village occasion with a fantastic array of vegetables, flowers, cakes, eggs the lot and all beautifully displayed.
“There’s also been a brilliant turn out of people to enjoy it all and our thanks go to the organisers for putting on such a fantastic show.”
All the produce was later auctioned off for local charities.
