Sutton Mandeville Flower Show - Report

Annual Summer Show Saturday 20 August 2022 - Fovant Village Hall




It is 3 years since the last Sutton Mandeville Horticultural Society Flower Show took place so perhaps not surprisingly the number of entries was down and the weather had made it difficult for gardeners.


Nevertheless the standard of entries was high and competition was fierce. The entries had to be brought along by 10am and the judges (from neighbouring villages) then set to work.


The Show opened to exhibitors and the general public at 3pm. The presentation of cups took place after tea.


The winners were as follows:


  • Sidney Mullens Cup-outstanding fruit or veg entry - Trish Gray

  • Lappage Cup-Village tray of vegetables - Ralph Dicker

  • Residents Cup-most points in flower section - Lynne Gailey

  • Presidents Cup-best floral arrangement - Ev Shenk

  • Jubilee Rose-best domestic entry - Galena Dobosch

  • Mrs Lodge Plate-judge’s recipe - Cynnie Willis

  • Challenge Cup-best photograph (public vote) - Nigel Poole

  • Best in Show cup-best entry in craft section - Trish Gray

  • Mandeville Cup-best entry in Children’s section - Isabel Green


A raffle took place which raised over £70 for the Ukrainian appeal.
