Old Buckenham Show winners

Produce Show results

It was almost like old times with the Village Produce and Handicraft Show taking place in the Village Hall on Sunday 12 September. The organisers, Old Buckenham Women’s Institute, were delighted to have even more people putting in entries than at the last show two years ago. The judges were hard at work soon after 11am, only to be interrupted by Julie Reinger from Radio Norfolk’s Treasure Quest looking for a clue attached to the longest runner bean.

County councillor Steve Askew attended in the afternoon to present the cups and trophies. The winners were Jane Burrows for Preserves, Kate Binks for Cookery, Debbie Thomas for eggs, Betty Stacey for Handicrafts and Ron Brewer for Art. In the children’s classes Eddie Wright had most points for those under 11 and James Hills won for those between 8 and eleven.The prize for ‘best in show’ in the Children’s classes went to Millie Brister.

John Frost won the sections for Flowers, for Pot Plants and for Vegetables and Fruit meaning that he gained most points overall and was presented with several trophies. And it was his birthday too!

If you would like to take part in 2022, the date to put in your new diary should be Sunday 10 September.
