DESPITE cold weather delaying flowering, members of Beeding and Bramber Horticultural Society put on a colourful spring show on Saturday.

Many visitors went along to Beeding and Bramber Village Hall to view the displays and supported the society by buying cakes and plants.

Prize-giving was something of a family affair, with husbands and wives both taking home trophies.

Alasdair MacCulloch gained most points in the show, winning the Spring Show Cup. His wife, Julie MacCulloch, meanwhile, was awarded the Vincent Cup for the best exhibit in the flower classes.

Roger Hornsby won the George and Hilda Newman Trophy for his exhibit of foliage in the floral art section, while his wife Joan was presented with the Saltings Cup for her photography.

Among other prize winners was newcomer Tony Hill, receiving the Hilda Phillips Cup for the best entry of nine blooms of daffodils of one variety.
