Market Lavington Museum

The Top ten of 2006


We refer here to the top ten point scorers in the 2006 Lavington Produce Show. These days the show is combined with the Gardening Club show but these points only concern the open competition. Anyone can enter in a number of categories which are:

Vegetables
Flowers
Fruit
Cooking
Craft
Photography
Novelty

Points get awarded by expert judges. For most classes a first place gets 3 points, a second place gets two points and third place gets one. All points are added to arrive at an overall winner who is awarded the chairman’s cup for the year. Individual sections get their own trophies, donated by village stalwarts.

Today it will be the 2015 show, which means 10 shows ago it was 2006. Let’s see who were in the top ten that year.

Rog Frost11

Catherine Kyte9

Rupert is a regular winner – he has so many skills in various areas. Harry Greening was alive and exhibiting then. Sadly he is no longer with us. Two of those entrants were fairly young at the time.

Score sheets are kept and eventually get stored in the museum. This allows us to remember those past names.
