100th Eccleshill Horticultural Society annual show

Event organiser, John Edmundson. Entries lined up and ready for judging.
The event of the 100th Eccleshill Horticultural Society annual show saw the notable continuation of a dying tradition.

This committed and stoic group proudly continue the tradition that stretches back to when societies such as this were more commonplace and patronised. And also harks back to a time when cities such as Bradford, where Eccleshill is located, were flourishing through industrial growth and consequent prosperity.

I was commissioned by the local newspaper, the Bradford Telegraph & Argus, to record this event. And as always, I found an interesting and wonderful mix of people working hard to bring about something rather wonderful. 

Always a pleasure to meet such lovely people and experience community events of this kind.
