Early blooming daffodils did not spoil the variety of entries at Bovingdon and District Horticultural Society's Spring Show.

March's warm weather meant many of the daffodils had already past their prime before the show on April 13, reducing the number of entries in the daffodil section.

Nonetheless Gillian Johansson was awarded the Wildacre Cup for her various daffodil entries along with the Daffodil Society Medal for the best daffodil exhibition for her vase of 12 mixed daffodils.

Mavis Lawrence won the Lily’s Florist voucher for her creative floral art exhibit Down the Garden Path.

The Challenge Cup for the best exhibit in the handicrafts section was won by Frances Howard for her knitted jumper.

Of the 14 pictures in the painting/art section, Margaret Horwood’s Textured Abstract won the Pendley Estates Cup.

Sixteen pupils at Bovingdon Primary Academy entered paintings entitled Design a Scarecrow.

The five to 7- year-old group was won by five-year-old Marina Gould and the 8 to 10-year-old group was won by Isaac Smalley, eight.

The nursery submitted some very colourful paintings under the title Blossom and the judges awarded stars for the Reception class's striking paintings of snails.
