Chearsley Show - Saturday 3rd Sept

Once again Chearsley residents showed how green fingered and creative they are, at the annual Chearsley Show.   A few lucky winners got to take home a plaque or cup to admire and polish until next year, awarded by our new vicar the Reverend Richard Phillips :

Best Photograph - Clare McCormick
Best Art Entry - Caroline Dean
Best Craft - Giles Witcher
Harold Braley Cup for Best Child's Entry - Kit Chantry
Child's Champion - Jessica Taylor
Eli Godfrey Plate for Men's Jam Tarts - Justin Chantry
Wildfred Kind Cup for Best Domestic - Ineta Green
Olive Ashworth Cup for Best Flowers - Margaret Morbey
Lane Bud Vase for Best Flower Arrangement - Julia Pountney
Wooden fruit bowl for Best Fruit - Michael Heybrook
Gadsby Trophy for Best Veg - Julian George
Pat Marshall Cup for Best Tomatoes - Margaret Morbey
Vic Walker Cup for Overall Winer - Julian George

Here are a few of the entries.  Apologies if yours is not included:

The "Showstopper" cakes were really impressive, 
especially this one made by a child - Tiffany

Justin Chantry won the super competitive Men's Jam Tarts, but congratulations should go to Freddie W for competing with the grown ups with this fine entry:

As our resident retired baker Keith is gradually teaching the men of the village to bake bread, I'm sure the "bread" category will become as hotly competitive as the jam tarts.  This year Darren Sampson's entry won.

The children's fairy cakes were very imaginative as usual.

 and likewise for the "Garden on a plate", won by this entry from Harry L

 and the boiled eggs were all eggselent!

Best arrangement to celebrate the 90th birthday of the Queen was won by Julia Pountney, with Anne Lewis also entering a beautiful arrangement.

Ineta Green had a fine specimen rose

and John Lewis a great close up

matched by little Elsie's jellyfish

 and Freddie's sunset

Many thanks to Joy Payne and her team for organising the event and providing lovely tea and cakes.
