And the Winner is……..

It was a great day for The White House and Dulcote yesterday when we swept the board for prizes at the Dulcote and Dinder Flower and Produce Show.

Ms Ross Bufton came away with three trophies for her beautiful fruit and flower displays.  And our neighbour Frank won his cup for the best hanging basket.

But The White House were delighted with their own haul.  And despite the devastating finding just before the competition that our third marrow had been totally destroyed by a falling plum tree branch (meaning we had to replace this fantastic specimen with an overgrown courgette…….) this offering still won second prize!

Our total prizes (although we forgot to pick up our prize money of £1 for first prizes and 50p for second prizes……)  were:

1st Prize:    Luscious sponge cake
1st Prize:    Junior cake – Edward Harris
1st Prize:  Needlecraft – winning a fantastic cup which is now pride of place in our kitchen
2nd Prize:  Junior cake – Lucy Harris
2nd Prize:  3 marrows, courgettes or squash
2nd Prize:   2 beetroot
2nd Prize:   Homemade beverage, wine, beer, cordial (for our delicious Blackberry liqueur)
2nd Prize:   Jar of home made jelly (for our Lemon curd – a favorite with our guests)
3rd prize:   Jar of home made marmalade
3rd Prize:   A piece of project work – Lucy Harris

It was great fun to enter, the event ended with a rowdy auction of all the produce and we really felt a part of village life.
