Success for S&S at the Beaminster Horticultural Society Show
As sponsors of Beaminster Horticulture Society, we were thrilled to see them hold such a successful show during the summer.
I’m very proud to say our Administrator, Jane Crabb won a 1st prize for her stunning hydrangea. Also it was lovely to that one of our vendors had won a prize for a lovely sketch of her garden. Congratulations both!
