Horticultural Spring Show 2015

Home » News » Horticultural Spring Show 2015

The Haddenham Horticultural Society's Spring Show and Plant Sale took place on Saturday 25th April.

The Spring Show is always a much more modest affair than the Society's major show in the autumn, as it is intended to add a bit of colour to the Hall, with the main purpose of the day being raising funds for other activities during the year from the plant and other stalls. Nevertheless, the classes were still keenly contested and also much admired and appreciated by visitors to the Show, judging by the comments received.

Trophy Winners:

The Bob Hutchings Cup was won by Jeanne Marshall (runner up, David Capon).

The Ken Lane Memorial Trophy: Equal points were achieved by Marion Daleki and Gay Jordan, but the trophy was awarded to Marion Daleki under the "countback rule" whereby the winner is decided by reference to the number of first places.

Garden Vouchers (all classes):

First and £15 Jeanne Marshall (19 points);
Second and £10 Gay Jordan (13 points);
Third and £5 David Capon (12 points)

As always, the Society would like to thank all helpers and visitors who contributed to making the Show a great success once again.
