Sweet Pea Growing Competition, 2011 style
In 1911, the Minister of Sprouston Kirk, Rev. Denholm Fraser, and his wife, won first and third prizes in the national Sweet Pea competition run by the Daily Mail out of 38,000 entries!
They used most of their prize money of 1050 to build a Chancel for the church.
2011 sees the centenary of this marvellous event, which will be celebrated on 14th 15th and 16th August .
