Award winning stars in the WIs

The talents of WI members were on show as Ludford Village Hall played host to a biennial craft and produce show.

Show winners: Rollings Scones won three of the six cups on offer - Flowers, Cookery and shared the Produce Cup EMN-170108-070951001

Almost 300 individual entries were on display across six classes from the WI members of Authorpe, Keddington & Louth Park, Ludford, Rolling Scones, South Elkington and South Reston & District, who make up the Louth Group.

The judges had a tough time deciding on the winning entries, with scores accumulating towards totals for each WI.

It was the first time members of Rolling Scones WI, which formed in 2012, had entered the show and they showed they certainly knew what they were doing.

As well as coming away with many individual first place cards, collectively they won three of the six cups on offer - cut flowers, cookery and produce, which they shared with Authorpe WI.

The Floral Art Trophy went to Keddington & Louth Park WI, with the arrangements of member Ann Byrne being placed first in four of the five classes.

South Elkington WI was awarded the Preserves Cup and Ludford the Craft Cup.

“Once again, the show was very well supported by the members, with all six WIs in our group taking part” said show secretary Christine Chapman.
