There was a beautiful display in Findon Village Hall and the chance to enjoy the sunshine out in the grounds.

Committee member Maureen Bowen said: “It was absolutely beautiful and it was amazing because so many people were sitting outside with tea, coffee and cakes, and it was just like the summer show.

“The weather was such a bonus. Sometimes it can be a bit chilly or raining for the spring show but this was like the summer.

“We did have an excellent turnout and our entries were up overall but the tulip section exceeded the daffodils this year, because a lot of them were over. I could only enter about half the amount that I would normally do at this time of year, for example.

“It was good because we all had a feeling that our entries would be down but in fact, they were up. We had a lot more cookery entries this year and it was lovely to see a few males taking part in that section.”

Cup winners were Shirley Hobden, Bon Young, Graham Hobson, Norman Allcorn, Maureen Bowen, Mike Solomons, Sue Bell, Brenda Cox and Richard Bell.

The summer show will be held on Saturday, August 5.
