The floral arts section was given a boost by the presence of entries from West Herts College and a children’s section was included in the show for the first time.

Show secretary John Walker said: “The show was a success not only from the number of entries, but the quality of the exhibits show that the village of Bovingdon remains really committed to this kind of event.”

The Wildacre Cup for the exhibitor gaining the most points in the flower sections and to who the Daffodil Society Medal was awarded was Brian Stewart.

Once again he was closely run by Gill Johansson but there are others who are working hard to challenge them.
