The top exhibitor prize at Crowborough Horticultural Society’s Annual Show was awarded to Wendy Jones.  As well as being awarded the Crowborough Town Council Shield for the highest points, Wendy was also the winner of the Fred Knight Cup for flowers and shrubs.

The Bill Knight Shield for the highest points in the Schools Competition went to Jarvis Brook School Gardening Club.

The total number of entries in adult classes was up by about 40 on last year, with some new names appearing in the prize lists.  A welcome boost in numbers came from children entering independently or as part of a family, a trend the Society is keen to encourage.

Jarvis Brook and Whitehill School gardening clubs again put on impressive displays of their year’s work, and many of their pupils entered both adult and children’s classes, with commendable success.
