Annual Show 2009

The 20th Annual Fruit, Vegetable and Flower Show was held at Shipley College on Saturday 19th September.

Martin Bijl introduced Ann Cryer, our local MP, to present the prize. He said the number of entries at 554 was about 150 up from last year. It left the judges with an extremely difficult job deciding on the winners in all the classes.

Mrs Cryer then presented the cups, bowls and the shield.

During the day there were stalls with organic fruit, vegetables and home made products to buy, as well as a selection of hot and cold meals to keep us going.

The Show remains as popular as ever, and we seem to be the only organic one running in the country – some others have run for a while since we set the ball rolling 20 years ago, but none survived for very long.
