In true Briantspuddle village tradition, the annual Bladen Social Club’s Horticultural show is always a great success.
The Village Hall and Bladen Social Club open their doors to welcome old and new entrants into the show. Light refreshments were available in the social club, with barbeque and various charitable stalls outside.
The main event in the Hall attracts many entries ranging from the traditional fruit and vegetables, to skilled arrangements of flowers, plants and foliage. These are presented in many ways, usually with a special theme. The high quality of entries for the home products section of cakes jams and chutneys, along with handicrafts such as hand knitting, prove that despite the fast world in which we live, traditional skills have certainly not died out. The photography section brings out the would-be David Baileys!
Thanks to all the participants – why not make a date in your diary for next year’s event on the first Saturday in August.
