The Haddenham Horticultural Society's Spring Show and Plant Sale took place on Saturday 26th 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.
Jeanne Marshall won the Bob Hutchings Cup for the most points in the flower classes, judged by Len Bellis, and Sue Towersey and Gay Jordan were joint winners of the Ken Lane Memorial Trophy for the most points gained in the floral art classes, judged by Joy Payne.
Garden Vouchers were awarded to Gay Jordan (first, with 17 points across all classes including four first placings); Jeanne Marshall (second, also with 17 points, with two first placings); and Christina Jeffery (third, with 15 points across all classes).
As always, the Society would like to thank all helpers and visitors who contributed to making the Show a great success once again.
