Green fingered locals recognised

Rowley Regis MP James Morris joined green fingered locals for the annual Rowley Regis Horticultural Society Show which saw prizes handed out for the best in show, flower arranging and the inaugural James Morris Cup for cakes.


Each year the society meet to hand out a variety of prices to local allotment holders to recognise their commitment and talent with produce, flowers and baking.


This year Sue Goodyear won the Hobbs Cup for most points in show, followed by Ed Overfield wining the Association Cup for second place. This year also saw the introduction of the James Morris Cup for most points in cakes which was won by Doreen Overfield. James has been attending the society's show for a decade, opening it each year and handing out the prices.


James Morris MP said, "2019 has been another fantastic year for growers in Rowley Regis and the members put on yet another great show. Growing vegetables, flowers or baking are not just important skills but also a good way of relaxing and enjoying some downtime. I look forward joining them again next year for another bumper harvest."
