Bishop blooms once again at Town Council’s 2nd Horticultural and Produce show
With thirty one different classes this year, including various vegetables, flowers, home baked goods and a children’s section, Bishop Auckland Town Hall was transformed into a show of very high standards, as it draws in over three hundred entries.
The judges were particularly pleased by the exceptional quality of the exhibitor’s entries and agreed that the winners had been a difficult choice.
The Mayor of Bishop Auckland Ann Golightly praised the show saying:
“I was thrilled to see the fantastic vegetable entries, beautiful flowers and home baked goods and it was fantastic to see such a huge turnout of exhibitors.”
‘Thank you to all of those who took the time to come along and enter the show, and a special thank you to the stewards who made the show possible, without the help of Liz Drake, Chris Davidson, Trevor Hogg, Bobby Latcham and Gordon Hodgson the show could not have taken place.”
Produce was auctioned at the end of the show and thanks to the generosity of the exhibitors just over £200 was raised for the Mayor’s charity the Butterwick Hospice. Vegetables that were left over were donated to the Woodhouse Close food bank.
