Winners of the Daglan Flower Competition 2017
Our intrepid roving reporters Sherry and Angus were there at the scene to record the event of the year. The prize giving ceremony for the winning entrants of the Daglan Flower Competition.
Our innovative Maire has changed the format of the annual competition to incorporate more categories than in previous years and instead of prizes of money vouchers and wine we now have delicious local wines and food hampers for category winners and champagne and wine awards for runners up. Also in previous years the prizes where handed out discreetly to the winners, but this year all of the winners and runners up were invited to a get together at the Marie’s Salle du Conseil for the presentations.
The meeting began with a picture show of the winning gardens and balconies showing the jury in their deliberations. Then our Maire, Mr Dussol gave a speech and afterwards he handed over to Mr Cabianca.
Here you see Mr Dussol (right) and Mr Cabianca ready to give out the prizes.
