Records tumble at 66th show

RECORDS tumbled at this year’s Binfield Heath Flower Show.

More than 2,500 people soaked up the sun at Holmwood on Saturday — about 20 per cent up on last year and probably the highest total in the 66 years of the annual flower and dog show.

The tea tent takings reached a new high while the sideshow takings were up by a fifth on last year. The dog show entries also broke the record while the class entries were up by about 10 per cent to more than 850.

Show chairman Francis Williams said: “I was helping out on the barbecue when I stopped to turn round and I couldn’t believe how many people were there.

“Takings from the tea tent were up 40 per cent and entries to the dog show were up 33 per cent.”
