2020 Show Results

Banksian Medal

The Village Show is affiliated with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) and as such is granted a Banksian Medal to award to the person with the most points in the horticultural classes. However, as most Shows have been cancelled this year, the RHS suggested that "it would be a great idea to present your medal to someone in your club who has gone the extra mile this year helping in your local community, or any other reason you think someone deserves a little bit of recognition!".

After consideration, the committee voted to award the medal to Pat Beadle - "She’s been doing the teas and rallying the Beadle family to help on Show day for as long as most of the committee can remember"

Here are results of the 2020 On-Line Show classes together with the winning photos. All entries can be seen on the 2020 Gallery page.
