Mid Devon Show Exhibit

After a very wet week in the run up to the show we were ready to set up on the Friday morning. Vehicles were packed and ready to assemble our exhibit. When we arrived at the showground at 9am on the Friday we were told the show had been cancelled. Two hours later we had a phone call to say it was on again.

So after a false start we arrived at the showground at around 12 noon and in just over 3 hours our team had done a wonderful job of creating a typical back garden with a strong recycling theme.

With thanks to the design team : Ros & Tim Nichols; Janet & Peter Billing ; John & Jean Bennett and Mary Smith & Carol Beer.

Grateful thanks to Andy Hilton of Hilton Carpet Service for providing the van to carry everything from the garden shed door to trays of plants both on the Friday in the mud and on Saturday evening when everything was dismantled.

Many thanks to Ann Crawford and Ken Howe for providing cut flowers and pot plants and to various members for providing greenery.
