FLOWER SHOW AT LITTLE SUTTON. — The annual vegetable and flower show of the Little Sutton Allotment Society held on Satur- day was a decided improvement on any of its predecessors. The society appears not to aim at promoting a show of such an extensive descrip- tion as many within the district, but confines its efforts to the establishment of one more limited in number of classes, and withal a creditable one. The total number of entries was 440, an increase on the previous show. As already stated, the number of classes was limited, but competition throughout was most keen. The quality of the produce also in each class was very satisfactory, especially in the cottagers' section. Here the exhibits, particularly vege- tables, called for special admiration on account of their healthy mature appearance. In fact, good quality was the chief feature throughout the show. There was a good number of exhibits not for competition, including a beautiful collection of flowering plants, &c., sent by Messrs. Dicksons, Chester; a collection of coleus from Mrs. Hague (Ledsham), some delicate flowers with foliage from Mr. P. Owen (Capen- hurst), and ornamental plants from Mr. W. C. Jones. The judges were Mr. Nixon (gardener to Mr. P. Owen, Capenhurst), Mr. Fawcett (gardener to Mr. Hague, Ledsham), and Mr. Johnson (gardener to Mr. R. T. Richardson, Capenhurst Hall). Despite the stormy weather which prevailed the greater part of the day, the attendance was very satisfactory. To Mr. H. W. B. Porter, the secretary of the show, thanks are due for his valuable services. In the after- noon the village sports came off, and were favoured with fine if boisterous weather. The judges were Dr. Bredin and Mr. Beckett, and the programme passed off most successfully. The following is the PRIZE LIST. ALLOTMENT HOLDERS. Kidney potatoes 1, W. Lloyd 2, G. Mumford 3, G. Knight.
