This year, the show introduced a tots’ section (three years and under) with the help of Seahouses’ Busy Bees nursery.

The children’s section in general is growing (pardon the pun). This year, the children were given seeds to plant which had been donated by the RHS.

A number of them had peaked before the show, though feedback from parents was the children had really enjoyed growing the flowers.

Seahouses Primary School’s work was again outstanding. The artwork included paintings the children had done from when they met the Masai Mara warriors who had come to visit the children at school.

All the work was extremely colourful.

The Girls Brigade joint venture was in the flower growing, which was marvellous.

Mim Woodeson, who normally presents the trophies, was unable to attend due to an accident so Alan Haile kindly stepped in to perform the presentation.

The show had great support from a number of local businesses in helping to fund the show, and also local residents.

It was a fantastic day and the committee would like to say a huge thank-you to all who exhibited, everyone who came along to help on the day, the judges, the auctioneer and those who came to see the show.

Sadly, since the last show, chairman John Hanvey has passed away.
