Uley Show pulls in the crowds
ULEY Show proved to be as popular as ever this year with the number of entries competing for the coveted trophies the second highest ever recorded.
At the event at Uley Village Hall on Saturday, 77 exhibitors submitted 376 entries in categories ranging from fruit, vegetables, flowers and flower arranging to preserves and cookery.
At times the hall was packed with visitors and refreshments were available throughout the day, which was rounded off with a raffle.
After the judges had made their deliberations, John Cox was awarded a winner’s cup for his entries in the fruit and vegetable category.
Juliet Browne succeeded in the flowers competition, with Jo Rymer winning the flower arranging cup.
Going home with the preserves and cookery cup was Vicki Coffey, with Gillian Holmes and Bernadette Watkins sharing the handicraft's prize.
Winning the photography cup was Richard Furness while Sally Lamerton won the artwork cup.
Small cash prizes were also given to the young exhibitors in their respective categories at the event on Saturday (September 7).
Those creative children were Florence Sage, Poppy Sage, Lauren Buckley, Stanley Davies, Chloe Buckley, Henry Cornish, Naomi Clarke and Fergus Davidson, with Anna Blanch earning two prizes and Jed Lingwood winning three.
Chairman Len Freeth said it was a very satisfying occasion and expressed his thanks to the band of six helpers who made the day possible.
He added: "The show seems to bring the whole community together."
