Mary Wheatley chairs the County Show. Her and her committee worked tirelessly to get everything ready for the show and to engage with the public during the show.
The committee chose "Time to Celebrate" as the theme for the 2019 County Show Floral Art Competition. Wateringbury made a splendid floral diamond to celebrate 60 years of NAFAS.
The imposed class where every competitor is given the same items to make their arrangement was called ‘Harvest Home’ to mark the 90th Show of the Kent County Agricultural Society.
29 competitors filled the marquee with 52 colourful arrangements, some large and some very small. It is always good to see new competitors each year especially when they win prizes. The results can be downloaded below and pictures of the fabulous designs can be found in the Gallery.
We had a pleasant surprise when our National Chairman popped in to see the show on Sunday on her way to visit friends in Kent. She said how much she enjoyed it and commented on all the excellent exhibits.
Each year we ask the public to judge the children’s competition and raise money for Demelza House Children’s Hospice at Sittingbourne. We also run flower arranging workshops for children and sometimes their parents join in and take part. There were generous donations from the workshops and from the flowers sold after the demonstrations on the stage and in total we raised a marvellous £1280 for Demelza House.
