Bishop’s Hull Flower Show 2016Follow John Hunt on Social Media:
What a lovely afternoon was had by all at this year’s Bishop’s Hull Flower Show.
I was invited by Chairman Clem Prior, to assist him ‘meeting and greeting’ on the door, which was a great pleasure.
I arrived just before 2pm and although there was only a handful of people initially, this changed dramatically and by 3pm the Village Hall was packed with villagers and visitors alike, all having a great time. I don’t think I’ve seen so many smiling faces in one place for a long time.
At about 4pm the draw was made, with many people winning some excellent prizes and then it was time for the all important trophies and prizes. These were awarded to the winning entrants by Alan Avery, owner of Avery’s Garden Centre in Bishop’s Hull.
It’s worth saying at this point, that clearly, everyone who entered was a winner. All of the entries were of a very high standard indeed, many congratulations to you all.
I’ve added photos and videos of the event below.
It’s worth taking a moment to watch the first video, in which I had the pleasure to interview show secretary Amanda Gallagher. Amanda gave an excellent insight into the history, workings and objectives of this ever popular annual event, thank you for sparing your time Amanda.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in producing such a magnificent show for us all to enjoy and to everyone for making me so welcome.
See you all again next year – John Hunt.
