REPORT OF ACTON BRIDGE VILLAGE SHOW 2008

Lemon drizzle cake, cheese scones and chocolate brownies all made a mouth-watering spectacle at the Acton Bridge Village Show. There were arrays of roses, dahlias and sweet peas amongst the flowers and a colourful selection of tomatoes, runner beans, and home-grown potatoes in the Fruit and Vegetable section. The children had created some fascinating junk models and delightful 'vegetable creatures' as well as cookery items such as pizza and fairy cakes. The organisers were delighted with the number of entries and the support shown during the afternoon.

The Junior section was won by 7 year-old Claire Penney. She received a special cup.
