Hello Everyone

Just wanting to let you all know that we have sadly lost another of our lovely supporters and entrant to our shows as Dear Syd Smith died very recently and suddenly

Alan and I will be attending his funeral and have found out that in Syd's memory it has been arranged that any donations will be made to our little society !

How very kind and what a lovely gesture! We are enormously grateful for this and have never had this occur before as far as I can re-call !

Syd grew enormous vegetables and there are some lovely photos of Syd and myself on our website when he won one of his many trophies at a Summer show with his HUGE Cabbages ! Wow ! He always donated these after the shows to the homeless charities in Hastings to feed them - So wonderful !

He was a lovely gentleman and we so enjoyed his attendance to our shows

Syd was an inspiration

He will be very sadly missed by us all

Many condolences to his family and friends at this sad time
