Market Lavington Museum

Bank Holiday in the Lavingtons.

On Saturday, Market Lavington held its annual flower and produce show alongside the Lavington Gardening Club’s members show.

Amazingly, in what had been a tough year for growing, there were plenty of entries and a good standard in all of the sections, apart from fruit.

Here we see people staging exhibits in Market Lavington Community Hall.

Making sure the herbs are just right

A visiting moth took a fancy to some very fine parsnips.

Can anybody identify this moth species – here sampling Jack Curran’s parsnips.

Dahlias and other flowers made a fine show.

It is good to report new entrants and new names amongst the winners, In the open show, Claire Robertson – she entered for the first time last year – won by a big margin. In the members’ classes, it was Jack Curran who stormed it.

Well done to those two and all of the other entrants who make this show such a pleasant way to spend a day.

Tomorrow, Bank Holiday Monday, the action moves to Easterton where the museum will have a stall and a quiz at the Easterton Country Fair. This makes another lovely day out in the Lavingtons.
