The 11 daf­fodil classes were all well sup­ported and there was also a va­ri­ety of other flow­ers on dis­play.

Brian Ste­wart was a win­ner on the day gain­ing most points in the daf­fodil classes, he was also awarded the Cham­ber­lain Tro­phy.

The show also at­tracted a high num­ber of en­tries in the Young Peo­ples’ classes – namely for Rock Cakes and Baked Dough An­i­mals.

The cook­ery sec­tion also at­tracted lots of en­tries with tangy mar­malades, lus­cious lemon driz­zles and flavour­some fruit cakes among the good­ies on dis­play.

The hand­i­craft cat­e­gories faired well too, with the Art Tro­phy won Left,Left six-year-old Char­lotte Cur­ran en­joys the fragrance of the blooms at the spring show jointly by Ali Saun­ders and Don Sut­ton.

Club mem­ber and sec­re­tary Mar­garet Curle, said: “Over­all we had a good num­ber of ex­cel­lent en­tries.

“Although there were fewer en­tries in the veg­etable classes, this was more than made up in other ar­eas.”

Char­tridge Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety’s next show will be held on Sun­day, Septem­ber 13 at Char­tridge Read­ing Rooms.
