BOSHAM CHIDHAM & DISTRICT HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY

Annual Show Report - August 2019

Why is it that every August there are winds and torrential downpours the week before our Annual Show!  Thank goodness that this does not put the British Gardener off from entering their exhibits on the day!  We were dodging the showers as exhibitors arrived early in the morning to put in their beautiful flowers, vegetables and handicrafts in the hall.   It was especially heartening to see the number of children’s entries this year and to watch their obvious delight when they came to see the results! Lots of happy shrieks!  To our surprise the entries were up on last year and we would like to thank all those who made the effort to exhibit. There is always such a good atmosphere at the Show and that is why the Judges love to come each year.  As usual we had great support from the local area both with the entries and with those who attended in the afternoon when the hall soon filled up with people coming to admire the exhibits and the many stalls  Many congratulations to everyone who entered and of course especially to those who won prizes.   The Committee would like to thank all the members and friends who put in so much hard work to make the Show a success!

Our next monthly meeting is on Thursday September 12th when Bosham’s own Gaynor Dickeson will be giving us a talk entitled “From Garden to Botanical - What an Eye Opener”.   Gaynor is a distinguished and award winning botanical artist with pictures in collections around the world.  We are so pleased that she is sparing the time to come to Bosham Horti in between all her other commitments. Not to be missed!  Please put the date in your diary and encourage friends to come along as visitors.  7.00 for 7.30 in the Village Hall as usual.
