Crewe Does Horticulture

The first Crewe Town Horticultural Show graced Queens Park on Sunday and with around 200 produce based exhibits.

The Show is the first of its kind organised by Crewe Town Allotment Federation and made champions out of a number of local residents.

Everything from onions, cabbages, potatoes, runner beans to dahlias, gladioli, sweet peas, filled the Show marquee.

Judging was particularly difficult when it reached the domestic classes of Victoria sponge and scones and very scary when it came to the edible monsters.

George Cornes, Chairman of Crewe Town Allotment Federation, said ‘We had an absolutely smashing day!  There were lots of very happy participants who joined in and the general public picked up some great ideas and tips when they paid us a visit.  Roll on next year!’

Suzanne Brookfield, Crewe Town Councillor, said ‘The Show was a great success and exhibits were fantastic.  We are thrilled to be working with the Crewe Town Allotment Federation and can’t wait to do it all again next year.’

Councillor Dennis Straine-Francis, Mayor of Crewe, was on hand to meet and greet winning exhibitors and was particularly glad to present prizes in the children’s classes to Jodie Peake, Maria Price and Kimberlie, Scott and Natalie Dawson.
