It was great to see lots of new entrants to this year’s show – including the Beavers, who produced a splendid selection of vegetable animals, and John Harbuckle, whose perfect peas took the Chilton Cup. Josephine Butterfield won two trophies: the Win Glendenning Salver for her arrangement to welcome a new baby, and the Talbot Cup for the most points in show. Mary Dunn won the Talbot Rose Bowl, and 10-year old Lizzie Bloomfield’s brightly coloured cushion secured her the Joan Sheard cup for the best under-16 entry in an adult class. The 9-12 year old junior trophy was shared by Alexandra and Isabelle Peach, and Milly Homann won the trophy for 5-8 year olds.
Paul Copley won the cup for his immaculately-kept best allotment, which follows in the family tradition set by his late father in law, John Brewerton. Carrie White’s impressive blindfold drawing of a cat won our mystery popular vote competition. You can see her winning image on the village website’s news section, at www.brightwellcumsotwell.co.uk. This experiment of having something people could enter on the day certainly seemed to attract the crowds to the tent – but what should we do next year? As always, we welcome comments and suggestions – to our chairman, Paul Chilton, to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or to any committee member.
Kevin Harvey, the photography judge, noted a much improved standard of entries this year. Points worth noting for future exhibits were: 1. With groups of 4 photos on a theme all four should be able to stand on its own merit individually; 2. Avoid printing a caption on the actual photo; 3. For amusing photos, the picture should make you laugh even without a caption.
