The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress arriving at the opening of the Show
The show took place on Saturday and Sunday 15th and 16th September.  The Crossgar Team left early to ensure that all the entries arrived on time and were displayed to best effect. As always competition in each of the categories was stiff and a lot of work had gone into preparing the items being submitted to the detailed scrutiny of the judges.  

Crossgar can claim some considerable success as you can see below. However, it must be said that this page does not attempt to provide a detailed record of all the Crossgar entries and results - only some of the entries are highlighted. Apologies to anyone who's hard work is not featured!

The theme for this category was "Ode to Autumn" conjuring up memories of the poem by John Keats containing the famous line "Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness".
A combined effort of several of the members the entry was "highly commended". Only 7 points separated the top 4 entries.

Mary McMurray's Tea Cosy and Irene Deboy's pot of chutney were judged 2nd overall. The Wheaten loaf  was produced by Lily Gabbie and Rhona Niblock produced the flower arrangement and looked after the layout and presentation. 

The artistic talent of the Crossgar members was also recognised in the painting categories with this painting by Frances Price taking first place in the watercolours section. 
Maureen Rutter also made a suitable impression with this picture.
Last but not least, Lily Gabbie took first place for these delicious currant squares. Not show is her Swiss Roll which looked delicious and took third place in the category.
