DESPITE a poor growing season the Silverstone Village Show had around 250 entries for 70 classes.

The show is organised by a sub-committee of the Gardening Club, which reported a fall in the number of entries in the vegetables and flower classes, but they saw a boost in the number of entries for the domestic classes.

Once again Jimmy Adams proved to be the one to beat walking way with a clutch of Best in Show awards.

Sheila Peat, steward for the domestic classes said: “The weather has been bad, but if you didn’t have good flowers or vegetables at least you can bake cake, And there was a good turn out, not just in entries, but by people coming along to see the show.

“And there is some lovely competition, it’s like any competition despite what they might say, everyone wants to win,

“In some ways we have to accept that those who we think might win, do win. If you want to beat them your produce just has to be better.

“And Jimmy is such and nice chap, he has the most superb vegetables and flowers, I did beat him once, but he always walks way with a couple of best in show, and his garden is beautiful.”
