The first annual Bradenstoke Garden Show was a success at the beginning of this month (Saturday, September 9) and will be taking place again next year.

Around 150 villagers turned out to enjoy the vast array of exhibits at the Village Hall and St Mary's Church.

Organiser Sally MacPherson was very pleased with how the day panned out.

"Luckily the day’s weather held sunshine all day and the deluge came just after the last table was packed away," she said.

A wide range of exhibits were on offer, including handicrafts such as painting and photography, domestic, such as cakes, breads and jams, flowers, floral art, fruit and veg, and a children's category. There was also Bradenstoke's own Bake Off during the day. Prizes were on offer in every exhibit.

Ms MacPherson said: "We were very fortunate to have the enormous help and advice of Chris Walton of the Brinkworth Show Committee, and of our Senior Judge, Beston Wakeley who for over 30 years has judged entries at the Brinkworth Show.

"Our Committee worked hard for many months. Our thanks go out to all those who volunteered and helped on the day – you made it all possible.

"To all those who entered their exhibits, and those who came to the Show – your huge local support made it a happy and memorable day for the whole of the village of Bradenstoke."
