Full of autumn colour

What a strange summer! Sometimes very hot, sometimes chilly and often wet. However, our gardens and allotments didn’t seem to mind, as for our  Autumn Show on 7th September, the Village Hall was a riot of colour and filled with floral art, flowers, pot plants, vegetables and fruit as well as domestic, photographic and junior entries.

We had photos of our favourite Glebe and Ickenham Green allotments, and we hope to inspire more allotment holders to enter their produce next Autumn. There were also photos of our sunflower competition entries, won this year by the Crawford family with their sunflower measuring a massive 362 cm!

There was a lovely atmosphere in the Hall as the community joined together to enjoy the show with ever popular tea and homemade cakes. Glebe School brought along their ‘Back to School’ bucket of flowers and produce from their garden which had gone a little wild over the 6 week break but offered plenty of pretty colour and interest.

Following judging, the prizes and awards were presented by Lynn Ronayne-Bedhadj from Middlesex Hardy Plant Society and U3A Hillingdon gardening group.

Trophies for the overall winners throughout the year will be presented at the Society’s AGM on 29th November, meanwhile here is a summary of ‘Best in Section’ certificate winners for this Show.
