Lions Club brings the popular event back after a four year gap

The Seaton and District Show made a welcome return after a four-year break.

Seaton and District Lions Club stepped in to revive the event after discussions with members of the previous show committee.

The club put together a show programme with more than 150 entries.

Fifty people exhibited more than 200 items, varying from flowers, fruit and vegetables through to handicrafts, art and photography.

Lions president Jim Partridge-Hogbin thanked all who helped set the show up before the trophies were presented by Adrian Norcombe, the last chairman of the Seaton Show Committee.

Winners included Mr T Hammett, who took four cups in the flowers, fruit and vegetable classes; Mr J Lang, two cups in the pot-plant classes; Mrs K George, trophy for best cut-flower exhibit and Mrs J Fagan, trophy in the handicraft classes.

Isabella Synek Herd received the trophy for most points in the youth classes, 12 to 16, with Peter Johns winner of the eight-to-11 section. Beth and Sam Conway topped the youth classes for ages up to seven. Janet Lang took trophies for best orchid and photography. Linda Richards received the trophy for flower arranging and Carolyn King was awarded the trophy for best artworks. The Women’s Institute won the best club exhibit trophy.

Seaton Lions have decided to organise the show again next year.
