Ferring Gardening Club: Results from virtual summer show 2021

Ferring Gardening Club was unable to hold a live summer show this year but the virtual show followed on from previous successes in this format and it gave members some positive gardening targets to focus on during difficult times.

The show was organised by Gary Hicks, assisted by club secretary Chris Hicks, and the ten classes were judged from photographs by a team of three. Don Nice, publicity officer, said: “Despite strong winds and rain, there was an amazing response from members, resulting in 98 entries being received.”

Certificates were awarded for first, second and third places, and also a number of highly commended, due to the high standard of the exhibits entered.

The good news is the first club meeting since the pandemic began is planned for tomorrow at Ferring Village Hall at 7.30pm. Don said: “This will be held with all government protocols in place, of course, but we are looking forward to meeting up with members again.”

The club will be holding a live autumn flower show in Ferring Village Hall on September 11, with doors opening at 2.30pm.
