Fowlmere Village Hall was brought to life with a “superb” display of flowers, fruits and vegetables.
The spirits of Fowlmere and Thriplow Gardening Club were riding high as their annual show on September 20 saw young and old produce displays of foliage, cupcakes and paintings.
Gardening club member Margaret Jackson said: “The long tables in the village hall were bright with colourful displays of lovely flowers and foliage. The jars of jams, jellies and chutneys looked mouth-watering.
“Visitors arrived for the afternoon to admire the superb displays of flowers, fruits and vegetables and to marvel at the tallest delphinium, the longest bean, the funniest fruit animal, the largest pot plant, the prettiest painting and the tastiest shortbread!
“Lots of children, some as young as three, had used the garden theme creatively to produce imaginative animals, bookmarks and more.

“The day ended with a lively auction of jams and cakes, flowers and other garden produce, followed by the raffle results. It was a happy and enjoyable day for all concerned.”
Show co-ordinator, Sue Pinner, was rewarded for her hard work with a number of awards, including the Royal Horticultural Society Banksian Medal, which was presented to her by Wimpole Estate head gardener Phillip Whaites.
