The 2015 Annual Spring Show was held on Saturday 11th April

narcissi but not many tulips but lots of early shrubs together with some
terrific entries in the two children’s classes

There were over 260 entries this year , which well up on last
year‘s show, from nearly 50 entrants , which is again an increase.  

The results were as follows: –
