RHYDLEWIS Gardening Club enjoyed a very well supported autumn produce show on a warm and sunny day. Despite the testing spring and summer weather conditions there were still a lot of entries across all categories, including squashes, cape gooseberries, and home-grown lemons.

A range of crafts and home cooking also graced the tables.

“Yet again this year, we had a lot of new members showing for the first time, and the village hall was packed with members, families and the local community. Our club is growing, with more keen gardeners joining each year,” said Liz Blackler, chair of the club.

The prize winners were: Vegetable Challenge Cup – Janette Sharman; Floral Challenge Cup – Janette Sharman and Sara Redman; Homecraft Shield – Sara O’Conner; Best Onions Shield – Carrie Davies and Best Exhibit in Vegetables and Fruit – Janette Sharman.

Rhydlewis Gardening Club meets at 7.30pm on the last Tuesday of each month in the village hall, and has a varied and interesting programme. Club membership is £10 per year, non-members £2 per meeting – all welcome. Contact the secretary at ninahare00@googlemai.com or telephone 01239 851096.
