21st March 2015 – Spring Show Photographs

SPRING SHOW REPORT; Despite the cold weather, we filled Highbury Hall with a real sense of Spring sunshine at the Spring Show on Saturday 21st March. Twenty four exhibitors put in 170 entries: daffodils, pot plants, flowering shrubs, spring flowers, floral art designs and cookery. There were many entries in each class, especially in the daffodil classes and competition was fierce.  Ann Achow reigned supreme winning the Society’s Cup for most points in Daffodil classes and the Robert Gorham Cup for the best daffodil exhibit. Ann’s camellia flower heads were also show stoppers and won her the Howard Smith Cup.  John Callow took the Martin Cup for his many winning exhibits in the flower and vegetable classes. Overcoming stiff competition from Yvonne Savage and Marea Saunders, Jan Page once again took home the Durrant Cup for Cookery. The floral art display filled the hall with vibrant colour. Jackie Coombs won the Pat Billington Cup for her miniature and petite entries while Lindy Bates was awarded the Society’s Rose Bowl for the best large exhibit and a certificate of merit for her vase of spring flowers. Oliver Plummer made his debut with a prize winning vase of spring flowers and went away with the Children’s Spring Cup. The certificates and trophies were awarded by a representative from Demelza.  She gave a short talk about Demelza as it is our chosen charity for the year.
