For some years now Teresa has been entering the Winchcombe and Broadway country shows. This year she took on the additional challenge of the Moreton show – one of the Cotswold’s leading agricultural and craft shows, held on a large site next to the Batsford Arboretum. For several weeks the kitchen was. taken over by entries for the cooking and preserves classes, while the dining room has been a studio for the selection of photography and other craft entries.
At Winchcombe, Teresa obtained her usual respectable haul of awards (Juliet and Sam also chipping in with some of their own), while at Broadway she won outright the overall cooking cup, which she has only shared in the past.
To her surprise and delight she also won first prizes at Moreton for her chocolate brownies and her lemon curd in the cooking classes, and first prize in the Dry Stone Wall class for photography.
On the left above, the winning dry stone wall photograph – our bowling friends may recognise it as the wall behind the club at Overbury, just above where we dispose of the grass cuttings after mowing. And on the right, Teresa’s haul of cups and winnings – a well deserved reward for her efforts.
