Gatehouse Horticultural Show

Gatehouse Horticultural Society held its annual show on Saturday 27th August, after missing the last two years. It was held, as usual, in the Community Centre and proved to be a very successful and enjoyable day. It was great to see more new residents entering the many different classes available to them (some even winning prizes), along with the usual exhibitors who come along and make a great effort every year.  The show seems to be a great opportunity for all ages to catch up with folk they haven’t seen for a while, especially this year, and to have a chat and laugh while walking around and admiring the many exhibits on display. 

There were some excellent exhibits in the kids’ classes and as always it was great to see Gatehouse Primary School getting involved.  Overall there was plenty to see and entertain the crowds who turned up for the trophy and prize giving, and the weather was kind to us, the sun shone all day.

Joe Proudlock, the society’s President, introduced Jim Logan who kindly opened the show after giving us an amusing description of his gardening endeavours over the years; he then presented the trophies and prizes to the pleased winners.

Thanks go to Jim Logan, the Judges, members of the committee and all the other people who helped out and donated prizes, they all made the show the success it was.
