Review – Fritwell Flower Show 17th August 2019 – Another year of High Quality entries and list of winners

The 2019 Fritwell Village Hall Flower Show on 17th August managed to find a window of sunny but windy weather. With a couple of marquees erected – for the outside Village Hall café; Tombola; Bottle Stall; Gin Board; Raffle; Forget me Nots Cake stall & Lucky Bag stall and St Olave Church Bric-a-Brac stall + the Bouncy Castle, entrants and visitors alike were able to enjoy the Fritwell Flower Show on Saturday 17th August 2019.

A big Thanks to all entrants for their time and effort on your productions! See the photos below.

Also a massive thanks to those Fritwell Residents for their very generous gifts for the raffle, Bottle Stall and Tombola prizes. Your support is gratefully acknowledged and helped towards a total of £546.60 being raised for Village Hall funds.
