The Spring Daffodil and Floral Show was held on Saturday at the Golden Acre Community Centre, Ross Close.  There was a delightful display of different daffodils in the various classes, ranging from some with large yellow petals and trumpet to white petals with a small cup and fascinating double varieties.

The undoubted champion of the day was Robin Crouchman who exhibited the daffodil ' Inverpolly' which was judged 'Best  in Show', and was awarded the Society Medal, also the Townley Trophy for most points in the daffodil classes, also the Adams Harrison Cup for the most points in the show. Charlotte Heales was the winner of the class for the first time daffodil exhibitors. Mrs Yvonne Bishop was awarded the Barnard Vase for gaining most points in the Flower Section, including her floral arrangement 'Reflections'. Ken Peck was awarded the Ida Hawthorn Vase for the Best Society Daffodil, grown from bulbs supplied to members in the Autumn for showing in the Spring.

In the Junior Section the Scrivener Cup was awarded to Amy Moss for gaining the most points overall for her drawing of a chicken, photograph of a single bloom, Rice-Krispie Cakes, and the Townley Cup for her three daffodils in a vase. Sam Harris was awarded the Rickett Shield for his decorated Easter Egg which was judged Best Exhibit in the Junior Classes. Harry Moss's Vegetable Car was very popular with visitors too.

Mrs Teresa Pitts was awarded the Saffron Trophy for gaining most points in the Domestic Section for her Fruit Scones and was joint winner with Mrs Yvonne Bishop of the Decorated Cupcake class. First prize for the attractive Sticky Ginger Cake made to a given recipe was won by Mrs Ruth Coe.

We are grateful to the Town Mayor, Cllr Keith Eden and his wife Sandra for presenting the awards.
