KELSO 2013 CARTING PARADE RESULTS     Judge - Jean Hellingsworth
I would like to thank George and Agnes for asking me to judge the carting parades. It was meant to be last year but the weather defeated us. Thanks to all the people who allowed me to judge their beautiful carts and for all the effort and imagination that they put into it.


1st   REG with TED.  This cart was beautifully decorated with flowers, even the wheels and shafts. A Swiss flag at the back made of flowers. Reg resplendent in Swiss costume,  holding a shaft with a model head atop, which was modelled on his dog.  So much effort was put into this display.
2nd  DAVE with REDFORD.  Gorgeous display of flowers. Redford  beautifully groomed with lovely harness. Dave in Swiss costume.
3rd  ELAINE with CINDERS.  Cart packed full of flowers, churns and Bernese toys. Elaine looking lovely in Swiss dress with a red rose in her hair.
