Terry Price awarded Frank Carter Memorial Plate - 2008

Weighing the Premier Berry

Weighing the Premier Berry

August 2008

Terry Price has been awarded the Frank Carter Memorial Plate for the heaviest Premier Berry shown at the 2008 Goostrey Gooseberry Society Show. His winning berry was a Lord Kitchener that weighed 31 pennyweights and 15 grams. The plate will be personalised and then presented to Terry in the autumn.

The Frank Carter Memorial Archive has been inaugurated by the donation of a pair of gooseberry scales. They belonged to Colin Garner, who bequeathed them to his grandson, Adam Garner. Adam has been interested in gooseberries since he was a child, when he watched his grandfather watching his berries grow. He now lives in Oxford, and gave the scales to The Blackden Trust because he feels that they belong in Cheshire, but he says that he is now left 'penniless and without scruples.'
