The show attracted a bumper 350-plus entries from 56 exhibitors from the wide local area.

A patchwork quilt entered in the handicraft section by Carol Green won the Willoughby Cup for the best exhibit in the show and Al Perna took the A. D. Dawson trophy for the most points gained in vegetable and fruit classes.

The class for the longest runner bean, aka Jack’s Bean Stalk, was sponsored by The Creation Station. The winning bean, entered by Al Perna, measured 51cm.

The organising committee wishes to express their thanks to all exhibitors for helping to make the 2015 event a resounding success.
