West Horsley Horticultural Society Summer Show Report June 2011


Congratulations to all of you who entered the Summer Show.
I’m not going to comment about this year’s weather pattern, suffice to say that the number of entries was up on last year but in general the quality of the exhibits was not so sharp.
It was comforting to hear the judges’ comments that this season has been difficult for the serious exhibitors at big shows, and all things considered we had done very well.
Some of the judges’ comments will prompt us to minor schedule improvements for next year.
Sarah Shaw, a long-time member and keen show entrant was called upon to present the following prizes,
Cutler Cup for Roses……………………………………………………………………….. Jane Lazenby
Sir Eric Bowater Memorial Cup for Summer flower classes…….Sue Lindsay
Morley Cup for the pot plants…………………………………………………………Jocelyn Foy
Liddell Cup for Flower Arranging………………………………………..….………Frances O’Gorman
Rye Cup for Vegetables………………………………………………….….……………..Neil Shaw

A number of competitors gained points which will be added to their results from the Autumn show on Saturday 17th September, for the following awards.
Homecrafts cup,   Members Cup,     Rubin Cup          Jubilee Cup
And of course the Childrens Cups.

Sue Lindsay, Show Secretary
