Village Show Results 2011

After yet another very wet summer Austwick residents were faced with the challenge of  trying to put together the Annual Flower and Handicraft Show. This is a popular event in the village and despite a particularly difficult year for flower and vegetable growing the quality of the produce displayed was extremely high. Those visiting the show were not disappointed  and all judges were very impressed with the standard of the exhibits.
