STUDLEY Flower Show has once again raised thousands of pounds for local charities after a highly successful event on Saturday.
The sun shone and the crowds came to Studley Sports and Social Club, where, despite a scorching summer the produce on display was once again stunning.
The list of attractions included a tombola, hot dogs by 1st Studley Scouts, tea, coffee and cake from Dementia UK volunteers and much more while bidding was as brisk as ever at the grand auction sell off.
“It’s been extremely successful – we have had a huge amount of support from across the village both from individuals and companies donating raffle prizes and even the sun has shone,” said flower show chairman Des Crow.
His words were echoed by District Councillor Hazel Wright who said: “It is really gratifying to see the amount of support local people here have given to a local event which in turn supports so many local charities.”
Parish Councillor Brian Dixon added: “Right across the board it has been a fantastic show in what has been the most difficult year for growing in living memory. This is a great event for the village and the people of the village have come out to show their support.”
On hand to present the trophies was the new Arden Marches vicar Kate Mier while a new trophy, the Wendy Hunt Cup, which was won by Ray Watton, was presented by Redditch and Alcester Standard editor Ross Crawford.
