Shoreham Horticultural and Allotment Society ended its 2016 season with a stunning autumnal display.

The society holds three flower and produce shows a year, usually at the Shoreham Centre.

Daphne Thomas, show secretary, said: “Amidst the hubbub of the Shoreham Centre on Saturday, the Shoreham Horticultural and Allotment Society held their autumn show.

“Again, the exhibitors filled Room 3 with their marvellous achievements of growing skills, displaying flowers, pot plants and vegetables.

“The photography section was very well supported and delighted the visitors, the category being wellington boots, shoes and slippers.

“The society would like to thank all those who have supported them over the past year and look forwarded to seeing them again in 2017.”

The red rosette for best flower in show went to Julie MacCulloch. She also won the Fred Hill Memorial Salver for dahlias and Farmer Cup for flowers and vegetables.

The green rosette for best vegetable in show went to Brian Thomas.

Bruce Button, Bayley Cup for chrysanthemums.
