2023 Spring Show


 Our Spring Show was held on Saturday 18th March. Entries were down on previous years due mainly to the long cold spells of weather. The daffodil entries suffered the most, however, Bill Howarth produced some lovely blooms including ‘Midas Touch’ which won Best Bloom and ‘Heamoor’ Best Vase.

The Floral classes were very well supported with Karen Boyce staging the Best Exhibit, pictured below.

It was a beautiful sunny day for the many visitors who arrived to view the exhibits and enjoy tea and cakes. A lovely community event.

We wish to thank the members who helped set up and dismantle the staging and all members and non members who exhibited and made the show a success.
