Chipperfield Horticultural Society's autumn show 'best ever'
Chipperfield Village Hall was ablaze with colour during this year’s horticultural autumn show.
Dahlias, chrysanthemums and roses were all among the exhibited produce at the annual Chipperfield Horticultural Society show on Saturday.
As well as flowers, a variety of vegetables, jams, cakes and breads were also judged at the event on The Common.
One of the horticultural judges said that "this show was the best ever for Chipperfield" and "of an extremely high standard, superior even to the county show".
The society hold three shows a year, each with classes for fruits, vegetables, flowers, photography, and floral art. They also have a domestic category, which includes baking and preserves and a handicraft category including pottery, paintings, quilts and woodwork.
The Junior Section featured animals made from vegetables, and a collection of colourful bookmarks, largely contributed by 23 members of a local Brownie pack.
The "Misshapen Vegetables" and "The Longest Runner Bean" categories finished off the show.
While admiring the society’s produce, visitors were treated to cream teas and home-made cakes.
