History and Show
The leek show is judged in the morning and involves a process called ‘benching’. We bring our leeks washed and tidy to the Crown Inn at about 9.00 in the morning. They are checked in, and the stamp recorded to your name, then popped on to a table for judging.
Leeks are measured for their circumference and height, the two leeks’ totals added together and there you have it.
All entrants will receive a cash prize which is usually the minimum of their membership fee.
There will be prizes for the following categories:
- Overall winner
- Best Leek
- Most improved
- Heaviest onion
- Flower arrangement in a vase
