SPRING SHOW
HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 2015

This Trophy on the right hand side is the Garden News Shield awarded for the most points in all classes in the Spring Show.
The Trophy was won this year by Elizabeth Dawtry and is exclusively awarded only for the Spring Show each year.

The Show was held on the afternoon of 11th April in the Village Hall and was a fine turnout of flowers, cookery, produce and handicrafts presented by village residents. The number of entries was slightly down on this occasion, but nevertheless the show was an afternoon well spent looking at what others had presented as both personal competitive entries and items shown for our pleasure!

A selection of Spring Show entries are displayed in the pictures below, plus some general views of the hall and the visitors present.

Photograph alongside was taken to show a few of the entries in the handicrafts section, which includes hand knitted articles, soft toys (like the squirrel above), design in tapestry, items of various crafts, including pictures in pastels, oils, water colours and inks or any other medium not specifically referred to in any entry class elsewhere.

These are the committee members who keep the wolf from the door by providing tea, coffee and cake to visitors and exhibitors alike.
Much of the cake is homemade by the team and other committee friends, so the canteen snack has become something which we look forward to at each show.

These two pictures show those judged as 1st and 2nd

Magnificent example of ceramic craft by Mrs Sue Butters judged ‘First’

Craft design with a very intricate pattern. The Judge helpfully commented “Good Design and colour scheme. Daisy pattern needs careful matching, otherwise a great piece”. Entry by Alma Blockley was second.


The two table spreads above represent some of the entries in the Preserves and Cookery fields. The only trouble with some of these entries is that not only do you want to view them, but you also want to sample them!

The Pictures below are general views of the table designated for the floral entries, taken when the camera view was unobstructed by people surrounding the table. There are 18 different classes for flowers, 14 for ‘Cut Flowers’ and 4 for ‘Pot Plants’, all on this table.


Today’s Spring Show Prize Winners, congratulations!

Members and Visitors at the close of proceedings.

Another fine show is over until we meet again for the next Summer Show on 27th June. If you are putting this date in your diary then also put in the Harvest show on 5th September. As I am sure you would guess a great deal of work goes into organising these shows and preparing long before the 2 p.m. to 4.30 p.m. of the Saturday afternoon of our Show, Our thanks to all concerned with giving the Village and enjoyable afternoon!
