Thanks to everyone who made the afternoon such a success, the entrants, the judges, the visitors and the many people who donated raffle prizes. Special thanks to Joan Freeborn and her team who provided the teas and helped in the kitchen, and to all those who made the delicious cakes. We were delighted to welcome Diney Martineau, who was herself the Show Secretary for many years, to present the cups.
