Nailbourne Horticultural Society – Spring Show 2024

We held our Spring Show on Saturday 6 April in Bridge Village Hall and after a mild but very wet winter, we were all concerned that there would be a lack of exhibits. However, members came up trumps and although the entries in the daffodil classes were greatly reduced, the number of entries in the two tulip classes certainly made up for this. We were also delighted to welcome a good number of visitors who came in to support us and enjoy the Show.

As in previous years our President, John Hill, presented the prizes which this year were won as follows:

  • Barbara Robbins Memorial Cup for most points in the cut flower classes: Linda Ellis
  • Best Pot Plant: Brenda Wood (with a cyclamen covered in beautiful flowers)
  • Best Bloom in Show: Joan Hill, with a stunning tulip
  • Whitten Spencer Cup (Chairman’s Challenge pot of Minnow narcissus): John Hill
  • Hill Trophy for “Best Photograph in Show”: Peter Fairweather.

The three Open Classes were won by Raj Dasan (chitted potatoes), Rajini Dasan (flower arrangement entitled “Awakening”) and Peter Fairweather for his photograph entitled “Nailbourne 2024”. Sadly the class for pre-school children attracted no entries.

Peter and Jan Aplin were our judges other than for the photography class which John Newell kindly judged.

The staging of the Show is very much a team event and thanks go to the members of the Committee as well as the volunteers who helped on the day, to those who entered, without whom there would be no show, and finally to those who came to support us.
