Village show pulls out all the stops
DESPITE the heavy rain there were still lots of villagers and visitors at the Treknow Village Garden Club Show near Tintagel.
The show was scheduled for July but postponed due to a lack of produce and flowers in the hope the situation would improve.
There were entries in all classes, young artists challenging the imagination with drawings of Cornish giants and creating gardens on plates. Alexander Gomez was the overall winner in the 0 to 5 age group for his Mr Potato Head and decorated mini-Swiss roll.
His sister Anna Marie created the best garden on a plate in the 6 to 12 age group, and Henry Dryden among those aged 0 to 5.
