Piddle Valley Gardens Club Spring Show, 8 April 2017

The Piddle Valley Gardens Club Spring Show took place on Saturday 8 April in the Piddletrenthide Memorial hall.

Despite the absence of many club members due to the twinning visit to France, visitors were treated to a delightful display, with colourful arrays of flowers, a wonderful presentation of floral art, also vegetables and photographs, with some truly outstanding exhibits on display.

The recently introduced Cookery section was well subscribed, with Easter themed biscuits, Simnel cake, preserves and of course, hot cross buns. A new award, the "Eric Groome Award", was presented by Jean Groome in memory of her late husband Eric. The award, a framed 'hellebores' illustration painted by Eric, was presented to Susan Chance for her flowering tulips, which was judged to be the best exhibit in the flower section of the show.

The Challenge Cup, awarded for the most points gained overall in the show, was won by Richard Agg.

Horticulture judge Mr RC Hayward stated that in his opinion the Piddle Valley Spring Show was the best local show he had seen.

In total there were over 200 entries in all categories, which reflected the great enthusiasm shown by both Garden Club members and non-members to exhibit their displays. Neil Herbert, Chairman
