2016 Flower Show
Thanks to our main sponsors, BID & Weston Town Council, we returned to The Town Square again this year. The weather was very kind to us and the number of visitors was greater than last year. The standard of entries was high despite a difficult growing year. Entry numbers were on a par with the previous year, handicraft entries were lower but photography entries were higher.
It was good to see some new names on the list of winners.
There were plants for sale, and a tombola that attracted many customers all day.
Our visitors were also impressed by the display “The MadHatter’s Tea Party”. The winning entries in the schools’ “Plant a Wheelbarrow Competition” were on show.
