Autumn Show 2003 Results

13th September 2003

For the second year running we held our Autumn Vegetable and Flower Show within the Caversham Festival in Westfield Road Park.  

It was another huge success, with lots of entrants especially in the Domestic and Children's Garden classes.  The weather was again very kind to us and the sun shone down on our tent and we had lots of visitors.
