Shalford Horticultural Society 70th Autumn Show – Saturday 16th September 2017 


We heard it said “The Best Show in years”


There were so many new faces and entrants and a fabulous turn out of results. Great to see so many supporting our shows. 

Our category 17, “Pumpkin of largest circumference”: The winner was absolutely enormous. Our Fruit section was out of this world; so many apples and pears, so many varieties; just so wonderful to see.  


The cookery section looked amazing; but we didn’t envy the judge trying many different flavours; it looked like the pickled chillies (category 62. Any pickled vegetable) were particularly strong!

We’d like to see a few more entering the children and teen exhibits; we welcome you all from near and far to give it a go at our future events. 


It really was a terrific event and the hall was packed from the opening at 2:30pm until the prize giving and the raffle at 4pm.  

We must say a big thank you to the ladies from the Bendlowe’s charity for the refreshments, to our six fabulous judges, to our president Alex Tanner for presenting the prizes, and to all our committee members, family and friends who gave up their time to help.  

Well done to all who took part. Everyone's a winner. 


Thank You  >>Summer & Autumn Show Winners 2017<<
