Packington Show – Saturday 2nd September 2023

Our village Horticultural Society PHS held it’s annual September first-Saturday Show again this year on 2nd September. This was the 80th year since the first show in 1943 held to support village members serving the armed forces in wartime.

The pictures try to give a flavour of the enthusiasm of the village to support this major function. The Hall front flower bed is in September glory; tables full of produce; trophies and silverware on display; and the hall and the meeting room humming and buzzing with visitors admiring the exhibits.

Short speeches from Bob Parry of PHS and show Chair Mike Powell thanked everybody who had participated. Cheques of donations to local charities and groups funded by this charity village show were handed out.
