Colourful flowers at annual Bramley Show
COLOURFUL flower arrangements and prize-winning vegetables took pride of place at the annual Bramley Show.
Expert judges spent Saturday morning at the village hall discussing who should take home prizes for a variety of categories.
There were displays of vegetables, flowers, crafts, and photography.
Organiser Anne Porter, 67, from the show committee said she was delighted with the turn out.
“The show is to encourage community spirit,” she said. “It is to get people to grow their own fruit and veg and do their own home-made cooking. It is a tradition for a village to have a show.”
On the day, John Attwood, 70, from Sherfield-on-Loddon scooped best in show for his carrots, onions, and runner beans grown on his allotment in Riseley.
He took up gardening after retiring five years ago and hopes traditional village shows will thrive. He said: “A lady who runs another show said these shows are dying because of lack of entrants. So it is something I have taken up, I find it quite rewarding.”
