The numbers are in for the Chester Garden Club’s Flower Show and Tea and they support popular opinion that the event was a great success. This year’s attendance held steady at 194 but the number of entries in the Design classes (120) was up from the last two years and the Specimens also showed an increase (122 entries). Congratulations to the Organizing committee and to all who helped make the Show and Tea a highlight of Chester’s summer.
The many club members and others in attendance took a large number of photos, which they then made available for publication on the blog. The previous post included lists of prize-winners and photos of trophy winners and their entries. The following gallery is composed of an additional selection from the many images that we received. As usual, images may be enlarged by clicking on them.
In keeping with tradition, a bounty of colourful displays greeted visitors when the Chester Garden Club held its 75th Anniversary Flower Show and Tea at the Chester Legion Hall on July 24th. Using the theme “Reflections”, the Flower Show Committee named the 16 classes in the design section for institutions and events that were linked to the Club’s seven decades of history.

Another selection of photos, showing more exhibits and familiar faces, will follow in a day or two.
