An array of daffodils, floral art, handicrafts and paintings were on display at this year's Bovingdon Spring Show.

The event took place on Saturday, April 11 in the Memorial Hall in Bovingdon High Street, with 25 entrants providing a total of 225 entries, which was up on last year.

John Walker, show secretary, "The weather has been kind and we had a near record number of daffodil entries this year, filling the hall with daffodils of all colours shapes and sizes.

"The Floral Arts Section was given a boost by the presence of entries from the West Herts College and we hope that they will come again.

"The show was a success not only from the number of entries but the quality of the exhibits, showing that the village Bovingdon remains really committed to this kind of event."

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

Mr Walker added: "Once again, he was closely run by Gill Johansson, but there are others who have worked hard to challenge them, which is really good to see."

Mavis Lawrence won the Florist of Bovingdon Voucher for her floral art arrangement The Big Top, Shirley Masterson was awarded the Challenge Cup for her needlecraft exhibit and Shirley Crockford won the best exhibit in the Art section.

Six-year-old Charlotte Jobling won the Junior Cup for her decoration of a pair of boots for a clown.
