Springtime arrived in Chipperfield with the first of the horticultural society’s shows taking place on Saturday in the village hall.

The recent warm weather inspired Spring Show exhibitors to put on a huge display of daffodils together with lots of other seasonal flowers, creating a riot of colour.

There was a big domestic section, including delicious coffee walnut cakes, marmalades and chutneys, chocolate chip cookies, and lots of hen eggs.

The craft items and the many works of art were all of a very high standard. Floral displays were particularly popular this time around, providing yet more colour.

Despite the very wet winter, exhibitors were able to produce amazing rhubarb as well as a selection of other vegetables.

The photography section provided some very interesting takes on the set themes, and the decorated biscuits and ‘egg heads’ made by the children were very special.

There was a very cheerful atmosphere at the show, full of promise of things to come, and a very enjoyable afternoon was had by all.

Two cups were awarded at the show. The Abrahams Cup went to Sue Tyler as the overall points winner and the H Simmonds Cup went to John Hopkins as the runner up.
