Jeff Owen wins again in Old Basing village show
IMPRESSIVE prize produce was displayed by growers at an annual village show.
And when it comes to winning ways, Jeff Owen knows a thing or two about being the best.
Mr Owen is the chairman of the Old Basing and Lychpit Village Show – and he is also clearly the man to beat after winning the top prize – the Bolton Cup – for the 23rd consecutive year.
Gardeners could enter their produce in up to 100 categories at the event, held at the village hall, in Newnham Lane.
Speaking about winning the Bolton Cup, which is awarded to the competitor who scores the most points across all the categories, Mr Owen said: “I really wasn’t expecting to win it this year having seen the other entries, so it was a surprise.
“The number of visitors was down this year, as was the number of children entering their categories, but the show itself was good fun. It went very well.”
