Despite cold weather and an earlier than normal date, the Bridport Spring Show attracted over 175 entries with some magnificent daffodils and other spring flowers from Mimosa to primroses. Perhaps the most eye-catching flowers were the unusual lime green Hellebores exhibited by Kiera Roth. Other entries ranged from intricate sugar-craft figures, photographs, homecraft, vegetables and the decorated Easter eggs.
Outside on East Street the plant stall raised nearly £220 from sale of plants donated by members which this year went to the Beacon Church Kitchen.
Back in the Hall, Alan Finch, mainstay of the baking and preserves section was just pipped to the winning post by Sibyl Gale whose range of daffodils and photographs collected the highest aggregate mark.
Congratulations to the organising team led by Anne Bark making her debut as show co-ordinator and thanks to all who help with making the event a success.
Don’t forget the Harvest show on Saturday September 9th.
