John Tipping collects the Millennium Cup for the debutante class. Winning this one means you have to go on to great things in subsequent years!
In spite of everything the weather threw at us at the start of the year - unseasonable warmth followed by gales - we still managed to fill Long Sutton Village Hall with colourful Spring flowers and produce. Congratulations to everyone who entered exhibits and particularly to the trophy winners. All our trophy winners are shown below with the notable exception of the winners of the Cracknel Gobler, awarded for the best pot of club daffodils, which were the variety “King Alfred” this year. Carole and Richard Birchby took first and second prizes in this class but sadly were not able to be with us due to ill health. They were much missed and we send our congratulations and very best wishes to them both.
