Spring blooms in Battle show

Battle Floral and Horticultural Society held their Spring Show in Battle’s Memorial Hall on Saturday March 28.

Although many things in the garden are rather late this year members still managed an impressive display. Particularly striking were the daffodils and hellibores.

The photographic section was popular and local children’s groups contributed some very creative exhibits in the junior section.

Despite the unpleasant weather on the day we were still well supported. Refreshments, plant stall and tombola were all popular.

The day closed with the following trophies being presented

Stan Edworthy Trophy
John Sherrington

Spring Challenge Cup
Pam Robbins

Amy Sargent Cup
Wendy McCarthy

Ann Mills Glover Trophy

Rotherview Spring Cup
 Amelie Dunk

Webb Spring Cup

There was also an award for the most popular item of art work with a “Spring” theme. This went to Maggie Doncaster.
