The Malvern Autumn Show at the Three Counties Showground, Worcester.
On Saturday 29th September, we boarded a coach taking us to the Malvern Autumn Show where we were blessed with clear blue skies, gentle breezes and plenty of autumn sunshine, the making of a perfect day.
Once inside the showground, many of us headed for The Giant Vegetable Marquee which held some amazing specimens.The Floral and Horticultural exhibits were just as outstanding with amazing displays of fruit, flowers, vegetables, flower arrangements and many other fantastic exhibits.
The most noise came from the Poultry Marquee, where chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, and other assorted birds, clucked, quacked, cooed and cock-a-doodle-dooed non stop. The pigs on display grunted, snorted and sometimes just snored, whilst the dog agility competitions were a spectacle to behold.
There was so much to see and do during our time there, far more than we have space here to describe, but it was generally agreed by everyone that it was an excellent day out.
