Our 2010 Spring Show was held on 10th April. Below the Show Secretary's report you can see some of the exhibits in the horticultural, handicraft, domestic and childrens' classes.

On Saturday 10 April the Society’s Show was held in Ickenham Village Hall and the beautiful spring day with almost perfect weather attracted plenty of visitors to see the lovely bright display of daffodils and other spring flowers.
Despite the truly awful gloomy and wet weather over the past few weeks, the quality of entries on the show benches was excellent with the only slightly disappointing area being fewer than usual vegetable exhibitors. The handicraft was very well supported and all the junior sections were exceptionally well supported. In addition to the competitive entries, there was an excellent display featuring the Glebe School Gardening Club, which is run in cooperation with a number of volunteers from our Society on a regular basis.
