Walter Andrews Cup

Walter Andrews Cup

Walter Andrews was a JP in Shipley in 1930, but we suspect that he was resident in Clayton when he presented this fine silver cup.

It was first presented at the 1920 show and has been competed for in every show since then.

We currently present it for the most points in the Vegetable Section. We shall continue our research to see if that has always been the case.

Frank Wallis Cup

Frank Wallis Cup

Frank Wallis was the son of Alfred Wallis, a mill owner in Clayton. There is information about him in the Clayton History Society web-site here and here.

This trophy was presented to Edwin Foulds in 1918 and 1919 and he, having won the cup in two consecutive years retained it for life.

It was given back to the society by Edwin's widow after he died in 1946 and it was next presented at the 1947 show.

It was originally presented to the overall champion for what was then a vegetable only show. The Walter Andrews Cup took its place whilst Edwin Foulds held on to it for the next 27 years so, when it was returned, it was presented to the runner-up in the vegetable section.

Haley Rose Bowl

Haley Rose Bowl

G H Haley was a councillor in Shipley in 1930 but, presumably, lived in Clayton when he presented this Rose Bowl for the show in 1920.

Alderman Hidle Rose Bowl

Alderman Hindle Rose Bowl

Perhaps many of the large houses in Clayton, in the years immediately before the 2nd World War, still employed professional gardeners who won the cups for their employers.

Alderman Hindle may well have had the other residents in mind when he presented this Rose Bowl for a "Clayton Cottage Garden" to be competed for only by "a Clayton resident with a property rateable value not more than 25".

It was first presented at the show in 1937 but, by the next year, the Society's minutes noted that the Class was "not a success" and the rules were changed for 1946 - the first show after the war.

Isaac Warburton Cup

Isaac Warburton Cup

J Warburton gave this cup in memory of his father, Isaac, in 1959.

It was first presented at the 1960 show.

J Milner Memorial Trophy

J Milner Memorial Trophy

J Milner was a keen rose grower and this trophy was bought to commemorate him when he died in 1977, at the age of 92.

J Hancox Shield

J Hancox Shield

The Hancox Shield was presented to the Society in 1987 to encourage children.

It is presented to the young person who earns most points in the children's section.

Teens Shield

Teens Shield

This shield was transferred to us from another society which was closing down.

It is presented to the teenager who earns most points in the teens section.

Kathleen Tallant Trophy

Kathleen Tallant Trophy

Kathleen Tallant presented this trophy, first presented in 2015, for the best teenage baker across all the baking Classes in the housecraft section.

Wool Boa\rd Cup

Wool Board Cup

The Wool Board Cup was donated by the British Wool Marketing Group in 1990.

It is presented annually to the person with most points in the housecraft section.

Alice Cass Memorial Trophy

Alice Cass Memorial Trophy

The Alice Cass Memorial Trophy was purchased by the society in 2003 to commemorate the life of Mrs Alice Cass.

Mrs Cass was a long serving treasurer of the society. She won her first cup in 1958, and was still an active member 45 years later.

John Milnes Tray

John Milnes Tray

This tray and the salver (below) were purchased in 1994 by the society to recognise the service of John Milnes, an ex-president of the society.

The Tray is presented for the best Tray of Vegetables; the Salver for the best Flower arrangement.
