The overall theme for the Floral Art Competition was "The Magic of Walt Disney" and The Badger Inn kindly sponsored the novice category entitled "Frozen."
The winner of this class was Elizabeth Russell from Wistaston and District Flower Club. Kathryn Cronin was placed third with her beautiful design (See top pic). Jean was not placed this year but received positive feed back from the judge (see bottom pic).
Kathryn also entered a beautiful bouquet which included flowers from her own garden in the "Cinderella" category and Jean entered a petite arrangement to depict "Toy Story."
A band of ladies from the village braved the extremely wet and muddy show ground to support the competitors and rounded of the day with celebrations in The Badger!
Huge thanks to The Badger Inn for their sponsorship and the gardeners in the village who helped out with flowers.
