The annual Shotley WI growing contest was held at the September WI meeting.
Mr and Mrs Railton from Snods Edge Gardening Club judged the contest. Each WI lady was given a plug plant, this year it was a germanium.
The plants were judged on their size, health, and appearance. The winner was Mrs Jones, with her beautiful germanium plant. Mrs Jones said she was “thrilled” to win and that she was “very proud” of her plant.
The other ladies in the WI were also very impressed with the plants. They all agreed that it was a very close contest and that the standard of the plants was very high.
The WI is a great place to meet other women, learn new skills, and have fun. We welcome new members, so why not come along to our next meeting? We meet on the second Monday of the month at 7:30pm at the hall in Snods Edge.
