Fetes and social events
As children living in Staplefield we used to enter our bunches of wild flowers. Also, a minature garden on a plate.
I never won a prize but it was great fun, and the competition was fierce.
We attended the Flower Show every year and one year my friend, Jo, and I won first Prize in the Fancy Dress Competition as the Bisto Kids.
I cannot remember the year, probably just after the war.
