Haddenham Horticultural Society staged another very successful Annual Show in the Village Hall on Saturday 7th September, attracting large numbers of visitors from the village and further afield.
On display were exhibits to please, amaze and delight — from flowers and vegetables to hand-crafted items, works of art and photographs; and from enticing cakes, biscuits and breads to homemade wines and preserves. It is this wonderfully diverse range of exhibits that makes the Annual Show such a fascinating and enjoyable event.
And as one of the organisers acutely observed, there are few village events that genuinely attract such interest and participation from so wide a range of ages.
Congratulations to all the organisers and helpers, who manage to create this wonderful community occasion.
The formal list of trophy winners and that of the special award winners can be downloaded from this page — see the PDFs beneath the images.
A large number of photographs from the Show can been seen in our GALLERIES section.
