Flower Show 2006

August 19 2006 in old Town Hall

This annual demonstration of Hatherleigh's gardening talents showed once again that standards are high. Vegetables and home made goodies were also on show.

Local celebrity Pete Walters from Fishleigh Farm opened proceedings with his owl Oddie, and together they helped distribute the prizes. As well as appearing with Pete - who reared Oddie from a chick - Oddie has appeared in public many times with his namesake Bill.

Here's a flavour of the afternoon.

This unusual combination won First Prize in the children's competition

Holly Morgan won First Prize for her miniature garden in the Under 8s category ...

   

... and then collected two cups for her Grandad Les Cole, who lives in Higher Street.

Oddie would not look straight at the camera when Pete did, and vice versa, so it was hard to get just the right shot.
Here's our best effort.
