Drumbeg and District Residents' Association
Silver Jubilee Flower and Vegetable Show

Saturday 6th September 2008

Opened by Colin Sloan - Local Poet


Despite the dreary weather this summer there was a good turnout for the show. The number of entries in several classes were down on previous years, but the quality was still there.
It was extremely encouraging to see many new faces at the show and as there were a number of activities for young people in the adjoining Cooper Hall we were delighted to see some local families coming along. Once again there were many prizes to be won in the ballot. This year Drumbeg WI filled a table with some of the crafts enjoyed by its members and this attracted attention among the ladies.
The PSNI brought along leaflets of interest on safeguarding one’s home, safety in the home etc.
The following cups were awarded:
DRA Cup, Best in Show: Eva Orr
Drumbeg Cup, Best Young Person: Olly Ryder Moore
Vegetable Cup, Best Fruit or Vegetable: Barbara Farris
Crowe Cup, Floral Art: Sandra Abbott
Rose of Drumbeg, Special Class Prize: Eva Orr
Jubilee Cup, Judge’s Choice: Margaret Jordan
Very grateful thanks to Hugh Crookshanks and the DRA team for all the organisation involved in the show and to Colin Sloan, local poet, who opened the show.
