More than 1,000 people flocked to the 123rd Stoke Poges, Wexham and Fulmer Horticultural Society Show.

Held in the grounds of the Stoke Poges School on Saturday July 30, organisers hailed the show as bigger and better than ever before.
There was a display of vegetables, fruit and flowers exhibited in the marquee, along with photograpy exhibits, home baking, jams and jellies, floral arts, and a variety of crafts and art along with a car show and goods to buy.

There were also a high number of entries in the junior section from the three local primary schools, and children enjoyed games and a bouncy castle.

Cream teas, Pimms and beer tent, barbecue, and ice cream van were in big demand as people sat in the sunshine listening to The Reading Spring Gardens Band.

Ralph Bagge, chairman of the parish council presented the cups and trophies to the proud winners.

Sandra Greenslade presented the Michael Mobbs Cup, given in memory of her late father to the individual, or group, that has made a significant difference to the show or society in the past year, won by Gaby Battrick.

Jon Homan, president emeritas said: “We were thrilled with the huge turnout, well in excess of last year, which together with the large increase in exhibitors entries made the show a sensational success.

“The judges commended the society on the overall quality of the show and the exceptional standard of the produce on display.”
