 Ickenham & Swakeleys Horticultural Society Spring Show
Saturday 6 April 2013


An amazing total of around 270 exhibits filled the village hall packed with visitors, and although the persistent cold weather did have an effect on the number of floral entries, the quality was excellent.  However the exhibitors must have been busy indoors to produce the huge number of cookery, wine and handicraft items in both adult and junior classes.  Of note was the amount of photographic entries and once again the best supported class was the ‘Men’s Challenge’ cookery with no fewer than 15 fruit loaves for the judge to choose from!

In addition to well supported junior competitive classes,  Glebe Primary School once again produced a superb display of produce and craft; it was most gratifying to see the great number of other under 16’s – and their parents - involved in the show.

We were very pleased to see so many some new names among the exhibitors as well as regular supporters. The ‘best in section’ winners were as follows:
