THE Rhydlewis and District Gardening Club held their Autumn Produce Show at the end of August.

It marked a return after a difficult period during the covid pandemic and the loss of stalwart member Liz Blackler when the class of 39 was on schedule in the village hall on Tuesday 30 August.

It was an event with regulars and new faces at the hall both displaying their products and admiring the entries and enjoying home baking, arts and crafts.

The judges were Robert and Rannveig Wallis, who chose the winners after what was described as ‘a challenging summer with unusual weather’, but the quality of home-grown fruit and vegetables was judged to be ‘outstanding’.
