2016 Annual show

Crowborough Horticultural Society Annual Open Show
July 9, 2016, Goldsmiths Grounds

The show was down on entries due to the wet weather unlike last year. We had new people trying out their talents which swelled this year’s entries. This year we also had children entering adult’s classes and winning prizes. Ashdown and Withyham schools exhibited excellent displays which drew a lot of attention from would-be young gardeners. Guess the creature was the best entered competition that we have put on and was won by Stephen French and Amelia Adams aged 5. Amelia’s Mum said she loves gardening and it was all her own work. Well done Amelia and we hope to see you at our future shows with your vegetables. Our new family competition was popular and was won by the Kaszuba family.
