The standard of flowers, fruit and vegetables at Seaford Horticultural Society’s annual show was amongst the best in the South East.

More than 500 people packed into Seaford Head School on Saturday August 9 to view the exhibits.

Entries were up on last year as there was a better growing season for vegetables and there more visitors than last year too.

Society spokesperson Gary Carter said: “Several of the judges who judge at most of the shows in the South East said that the standard of entries this year was one of the best they had judged at.

“As far as a success, we had a large amount of members who helped us to set up, take part and take down the show, so it was a big team effort. We are already looking forward to next year’s show.”

There was also flower arranging, arts and crafts, photography and paintings.

The winners were: Mick Brown for Best Flowers and Best Gladioli; R.Geraghty for Fruit and Vegetables; Mike Parker for Dahlias; Miss Williams for Cactus or Succulent; Marion Freelove for Hanging Basket; Mr Petch for Wine; Pippa Logan for Arts and Crafts; Sylvia Carter for Photography; Seaford Evening Flower club for Most Meritorious Exhibit and Tye Martin in Children’s Classes.

The society’s next social night is on Thursday September 25 where the guest speaker will be Phil Preece of Veolia.
