Chipperfield Horticultural Society Autumn Show

1st of November 2011

In spite of the very heavy rain and strong winds leading up to our Autumn Flower Show on 17 September, the village hall was full of wonderful flowers and produce.  With dahlias the size of dinner plates, asters, gladioli and numerous perennials and annuals, this year’s flower show was a great success.    With vegetables, fruit and pumpkins almost too heavy to carry, wonderful baking and floral art, together with fantastic photography classes, there really was something for everyone to enjoy, especially the scary animals made from fruit and vegetables in the children’s classes.   Our thanks go to all our exhibitors for their great displays and a further thank you to our judges and helpers; we could not hold our shows without you all. Our next show is on Saturday 24 March in Chipperfield Village Hall.
