I Letterston Horticultural…

Detailed Lists, Results and Guides

I Letterston Horticultural Society. The twenty-first annual exhibition in connection with this society was held in the schoolhouse, Letterston, on Monday last. The weather was very fine, and, as in addition there was a fair in the village, a great number of people visited the marquee, in which the exhibits were set out, during the afternoon. The exhibits in the vegetable classes were admirable. The judge, Mr F. Pratt, Glyn-y-mel, said it would be difficult to find a better selection. The entries in these classes were numerous, but, as the prize list below will show, there was a lack of competition in a number of other classes, such as one or two sections of the fruit. There were not many entries in the cage bird class, but such as were presented for show were of first-rate quality. A few well-known local exhibitors took most of the prizes, but anyone, who had a glance at the vegetables, etc., shown by them, must admit that they thoroughly deserved their success. A fair share of prizes came to Haverfordwest, Messrs. T. Rodney, W. Merriman, and T. Llewellyn always doing well there. Mr D. Jenkins, the popular Letterston policeman, was as usual well to the fore. A pleasant feature in the programme was the prize awarded for the best cottage window in Letterston. It en- courages the people to keep their houses neat and picturesque. The following were the judges:— Vegetables, flowers, fruit, etc., Mr F. Pratt; cage birds, Mr W. Nicholas, Haverfordwest: honey, Rev W. H. A. Walters. The best window was judged some days before the show by Mrs Harries, Tregwynt: Mrs Morton, Heathfield; and Mrs Edwardes, Sealyham. The committoe, under the presidency of the Rev J. Rees, did their work well, and the arrangements were satisfactory. The following is the detailed prize list:- CLASS A.—(OPEN.)
