Harting Horticultural Society hosted its 71st annual Spring Show on Saturday.
Displays of flowers, flower arrangements. cookery, and photography were hosted in the Community Hall on April 6, and a produce stall was also set up.
Cynthia Clue, show secretary, said: “It was a successful show with slightly more entries than previous years and being a fine day meant the support was good too. The refreshments offered went down very well - like always - home made cakes always go down well!”
The spring show has a number of classes, welcoming entries from everyone who would like to take part. As they are open to eveyone, the classes provide children and families with the opportunity to enter.
This year’s winner of the Lady Wallace Challenge Cup was Jim White, while the Charles Cooper Challenge Cup went to Sue Wright.
The Reg Bird Cup for Best Exhibit was awarded to Pauline Newton, while Jane Healey took home The President’s Cup.
In the Junior Classes, Sam Wyatt was named the winner of Mrs Champney’s Burnham Cup.
A full set of results can be seen in the library section.
