2018 Annual show

Crowborough Horticultural Society Annual Open Show
Saturday July 7, 2018, Goldsmiths Grounds

The show had 225 entries. This was down on other years due to the very hot weather and wet spring. We had people entering for the first time and winning prizes which is good to see. It is a fun show in which anybody can enter hopefully this will encourage more people to enter next year. A big thank you to the Town Council for providing the marquee to display the show.
