"Village Dance Proclaimed A Flop                By Dean Villager"

 

Full results listed here at the Dean and Shelton Flower Show in 1965. The show would have been held in the barn at Dean Grange Farm. Apparently the dance was a complete flop! Cutting from the Bedfordshire Times.

A rather rustic set up for displaying produce at the Dean and Shelton Flower Show in 1965 apparently the barn was swept out and cleaned ready to receive the grain harvest so it was ideal for setting up the produce show. Unknown photographer courtesy of the Dean WI.
