Saturday started early for us, feeding the animals and sorting out the chickens and making sure everything was loaded into the car safely for the forty minute drive to Trelawnyd. Once there all my earlier preparation proved very worthwhile and everything was staged within twenty minutes.
It was nice to have a look around the hall at all the other exhibits while it was quiet and chat to some of the other exhibitors as they put their vegetables and bakery in place ready for the judging at 10am.
There was an excellent turn out for every category.
As you can see the standard is exceptionally high.
The we got back into the car and drove into Prestatyn for a spot of breakfast, a mooch about the shops, a few necessary purchases, a coffee and cake at Marks and Spencer's and then back into the car to return to Trelawnyd, although we didn't go straight back to the show instead we called to Jackson's, the local garden centre first for a look around at all their goodies, after all it's not often we get up to that neck of the woods.
Returning to the Show at two o'clock we were just in time to hear John's introduction of the shows opener and listen to her speech, which is what I'm doing in the top picture, then we had a look round the hall to see how we'd done. I was really pleased to get a Second for my Blueberries ....
...and another Second for my green Marrow :-)
Then we decided as the queue for teas, coffees and cakes was so long to have a wander round the village.
We got as far as the village pub, where ciders were purchased and consumed before going back to the show to have our coffees and cake.
It was a lovely day out. It's always nice when we get to go somewhere for a whole day together and get away from the normal day today of our place. Highlights of the day were seeing John again, winning two Seconds with my fruit and vegetables and meeting a couple of lovely blog readers.
Christine and Debbie it was great to meet you both and get to have a little chat with you, I hope you both had as good a day as we did in what is fondly known of in Blogland as 'John's Show' :-)
Oh, and to round the day off nicely we also won a £10 prize in the raffle ... which is how Debbie deduced who we were ;-)
The next local show that I'm showing produce at is the Llanrwst Show in two weeks.
