The fourth annual flower show under the auspices of the Llanharran, Peterston-super- Montem, Pencoed, Llanilid, and Llanharry Horticultural Society, which was held on Bank Holiday proved a great success, not- withstanding the many counter-attractions in the district. The event was held in the picturesquely situated cricket field, kindly lent by Mr. J. Blandy Jenkins, of Llanliarran House. The exhibits, which were more numerous than on any previous occasion, i were staged in a spacious marquee, and a fine appearance was presented. The quality of the produce was of a high standard, and elicited much praise from the judges. The show of flowers was exceedingly fine, and Messrs. Cooke and Sons, Bridgend, had a show display which was staged at the en- trance to the marquee. Last velar an eis- teddfod was held in connection with the show but it did not justify the committee's depar- ture, and this year no eisteddfodic pro- gramme was arranged. The committee, however, followed the Cowbridge and Dis- trict Horticultural Society in instituting a poultry and pigeon section. The entries in this department were fewer than had been expected, a good many classes having to be cancelled. During the afternoon an excel- lent programme was executed by the Blaen- garw Brass Band, and an enjoyable feature of the afternoon's proceedings was the im- promptu sports. This year's presidents of the society are Mr. J. Blandy Jenkins and Mr. T. J. Masters, of Lanelay Hall. The judges were: Vegetables, Mr. T. Beynon (head gardener at Lanelay Hall) and Mr. Carter.
