2022 Spring Flower Show

2022 Spring Show

On Saturday 9 April we held our Spring Flower show, with plenty of entries, despite the difficult growing season, particularly for daffodils that are generally well passed their best this year.  The show was very well attended and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves looking at the many entries and chatting over a cup of tea and a piece of cake. For those that missed the show this page shows the results and a selection of photos showing the fine displays and exhibits.

Our thanks go to 33 members that entered the 67 separate classes and to Colin Barber, our Show Secretary, who organised the show.

Christmas Party 2021

Christmas Party 2021

With the continuing easing of Covid restrictions the Committee were able to hold the annual Christmas party as our December meeting, albeit with increased ventilation in the village hall. Just over 40 people thoroughly enjoyed the evening, which included Carrie Lyons playing live Christmas music on her violin, magician David Hardman entertained us with tricks at tables and on the stage, a challenging quiz organised by Colin, and an excellent spread of food washed down with mulled wine. You can see from the pictures below the fun that was had.

Visit to RHS Wisley

Visit to RHS Wisley

It was nice to be able to restart our BGA programme as Covid restrictions ease, and what better than to do this with a visit to RHS Wisley. A group of BGA members had a lovely day wandering around the gardens in the sunshine, some seeing the new buildings that have been constructed over the last few years for the first time.

2021 Spring Flower Show

2021 Spring Flower Show

The show must go on! – Following the success of last years virtual flower shows and the continuing Coronavirus restrictions we have once again held a virtual show  with members submitting photographs of their entries by e-mail. These were judged by a small team of willing Judges.

There were 196 entries covering 60 of the 64 classes making the task of selecting the winners all the more challenging, especially when judging the “home craft” entries – “virtual tasting” was interesting, but again the judges rose to the challenge!!

Our thanks go again to Colin for organising this entertaining event, and our judges. We hope those that entered had fun entering and everyone enjoys seeing the results, which are listed below, followed by the photographs of the winning entries.
