Foul forecast forces gardeners' show indoors
Above: Town Mayor Councillor Peter Robinson is pictured with prizewinners of Silsden Allotment Association, whose annual show on August 20th was forced indoors when a week of fine weather came to an abrupt end. The neighbouring Silsden Youth and Community Centre in Elliott Street came to the rescue as a venue when on the eve of the show the gardeners decided the event could not go ahead outdoors as planned.
