BATTLE Floral and Horticultural Society held a highly successful Summer Show in Battle’s Memorial Hall recently.
Members had filled the hall with a wonderful display of produce, including flowers, pot plants, floral arrangements, fruit and vegetables.
There were fewer roses than normal as many had been damaged by the recent rain, but due to the strange weather this shortage was compensated for by unseasonable exhibits, such as very early dahlias.
There were also cookery, handicraft and children’s sections.
At the end of an enjoyable show the following trophies were awarded:
RHS Banksian Medal - Brenda and Mike Clarke
Herbert Newbury Cup - Sam Hills
Chamber of Commerce Cup for Roses - Marcia King
Fox Silver Rose Bowl - Ros Winter
Sweet Pea Cup - Sam Hills
Vallet Silver Challenge Trophy - Carol Stelfox
Mander Trophy - Marcia King
Oddfellows Challenge Cup - Sam Hills
Cornish Guernsey Cup - Barbara Clements
Allwork Cup - Christine Nuthall
Jubilee Cup - Val Bishop
Naylor Rose Bowl - Val Bishop and Barbara Clements
John Cummings Trophy - Elissa Richardson
