BEAUTIFUL blooms filled a room with breathtaking colour for Shoreham Horticultural and Allotment Society’s autumn show.
The show was held on Saturday in Room 3 of the Shoreham Centre, Pond Road, Shoreham.
Daphne Thomas, show secretary, said: “The show turned out to be yet another success amidst the hustle and bustle of the centre.
“The dahlias stole the show this year. The beautiful blooms filled the room with breathtaking colours.
“This was our last show for 2015 and the committee would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support.”
Ted Banks won two trophies, the Fred Hill Memorial Salver for dahlias and Nixey Challenge Cup for fruit.
