The Uckfield and District Horticultural Society Summer Show was held at The Weald Hall, Uckfield Civic Centre, on Saturday, August 16.

Secretary Dorothy Sparks said: “It was a sunny day making it easier for the exhibitors to display their various plants, however the high winds earlier in the week did cause havoc with some plants being blown down.

“Exhibitors overcame these obstacles and produced the most wonderful produce and flowers. There were some beautifully colourful begonias, orchids, streptocarpus and other pot plants, together with gladioli and hydrangeas.

“The vegetable section was well represented with sweetcorn the best exhibit. Onions were a popular class as was a selection of herbs.”

Domestic and handicraft sections were well supported and there was a steady flow of visitors throughout the afternoon when the show opened to the public. The tombola and plant sales table were popular with visitors.

President George Dade presented prizes and thanked everyone for exhibiting in another difficult year. He also thanked the committee and members for all the hard work they had put in to make the show such a success.

The next monthly meeting is on Monday, September 8.
