For the last 3 years, Colin Clark has organised the Burton Bradstock Flower and Produce Show. During that time he has more than maintained the high standard that the village has always had and deserves. When asked his thought processes through the year to the presentation of cups and trophies at the end of the show he said:
“Apprehension, trepidation, satisfaction, exhilaration followed by elation!”
Well Colin it was all worth it. The Village really enjoys the build up, taking part and friendly competition.
This year we had a tremendously high standard of entries in all groups as you will see from a sample of the pictures taken by Mike Southgate on the day. The Rose classes were particularly spectacular.
Nothing beats taking part and the anticipation of seeing how your own efforts are judged. So if you haven’t entered before join us next year on July 16th. Best start planning now.
