Flush with success.

Last Sunday saw the inaugural Flushing Village Summer Fun Show. 'It was based on a traditional village show' said Sue Yates, Village Club committee member, 'we wanted to stage something fun and which could include the whole community and show off the recent improvements to our club'.

Held in the Village Club, it was a chance to show off home produced fruit and vegetables, cakes and pasties. There were also categories for odd shaped vegetables, handicrafts, flower arranging, children's baking and the tallest sunflower.

It was deemed a success not only by the quantity and quality of entries but also the number of visitors during the afternoon. Some 60 people took part as well as the pupils from the village school. Cup winners were Joanie Miller (best in show for her wonderful painting), Suki Pixton (best children's entry), Jane Weller (best adult entry) and Jill Claringbold (best sunflower).

£250 was made from the day, helped by delicious cream teas and a raffle with excellent prizes provided by local businesses. This money will be used for essential maintenance on the club, as part of an ongoing programme of work to improve the facilities for the whole community.
