Newborough Village Show. September 11th 2016

What sort of year did we have? Well the veg wasn’t  to  bad , flowers weren’t  to  good, cakes and preserves are always mouth-watering. It’s good to see the children’s sections becoming more popular and the photographs show the quality of mobile phone cameras. The fruit section was OK and the skill shown in the handicrafts classes was exceptional. Overall a pretty good year. All the people who entered are to be congratulated for their efforts. This year’s  winners  were :-
