Daventry Flower and Vegetable Show a Great Success

The Daventry Flower & Vegetable Show held at the Community Centre on Sunday 4th September was a huge success and it is hoped that the show will now become an annual event.

The show, organised by the Daventry Allotment & Gardening Association (DAGA) supported by Daventry Town Councils, saw in excess of 200 exhibits being awarded individual rosettes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. Five overall category winners were each presented with a £10 National Garden Centre Voucher by Daventry Town Mayor Cllr Glenda Simmonds.

The Mayor congratulated DAGA on an excellent show and commented on how proud Daventry Town Council were of their allotment holders for the wonderful array of home grown produce.

There was a good attendance from the public and allotment holders who all enjoyed viewing the produce, sampling homemade refreshments and shopping in the arts and crafts market.

The overall category winners were Vegetable: John Barker, Soft Fruit: Celia Sharp, Flowers: Daventry Green Health Project, Novelty: Kath Vaughan and Children's; Millie Burgess aged 7.

DAGA are donating the monies raised from the charity auction and raffle (£121.70) to the Green Health project who have an allotment on Daventry Town Council's Daneholme site to help people suffering with mental health issues.
