Spring Flower Competition 2021

The timing of this competition depends when we can return to meeting in person, which in turn depends on the coronavirus situation. If we could not meet in March, when the Competition is traditionally held, but it were safe to do so in April, then the Competition would be moved to the April meeting. This will be decided as the situation develops and details will be posted here.

This year’s Spring Flower Competition took place ahead of the March meeting in the unusual but beautiful venue of St Mary’s Church, East Lavant..
We are very grateful to the Rector for helping us overcome the closure of
Lavant Memorial Hall, due to drainage problems.
Itlwas really surprising that so many good quality exhibits were entered in all classes, in spite of the rain and wind.
In fact, the total number of entries was 24% higher even than last year’s record-breaking number.

The prizes were quite widely spread among the competitors.
The overall winner of the Competition was Eileen Morris, closely followed by Beryl Starkey and Chris Baldwin

ANNUAL FLOWER SHOW 2020 scheduled for Saturday 1st August

It is with great regret that we had to cancel this popular community event this year due to the coronavirus situation.

We look forward to seeing you at an even bigger and better Show next year (Saturday 7th August 2021)

Look back to last year’s

It attracted a very large number of visitors. The café area & the marquee on the green were full of people chatting whilst enjoying the delicious home-made cake.
2018 had seen a record number of individual entries at 416. However, in 2019 they rose dramatically to 477.
The quality of exhibits was also high, with judges commending the high standards of the Show.
Of the record number of 58 exhibitors, 31 won a first prize in at least one class, whilst 48 won a first, second or third prize.
In spite of the greater competition & wide spread of prize-winners, Michael Kingsford still excelled: not only did he win the trophies for most points in the Show overall, in the Vegetable & Fruit classes and in the Flower classes, but the number of points he accumulated in each of these three categories was twice that of the exhibitor in second place.
