With such fine weather – there was no need to put up any kind of rain shelter for the tea and cakes – so entrants and visitors alike were able to enjoy the Fritwell Flower Show on Saturday 1st September.

It was clear that the entries were of a very high standard and that was echoed by the comments of the RHS accredited judge present.

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