Summer Show 2014

Our Summer Show was once more a success and in spite of several of our regular exhibitors being on holiday the tables were full and many trophies were won.  An added attraction this year was a very impressive display of flowers and vegetables from the Garden Club run by.pupils of St Mary’s School.  We hope this will become a regular feature.

Spring Show 2014

In spite of a very wet winter and early spring, Rickmansworth Horticultural Society held a highly successful and colourful Spring Show on Saturday 12th in St Mary’s Church Centre – the first of three planned for this year.

 The awards were presented by Mr Les Mead, chairman of Three Rivers District Council accompanied by his wife Carol.

Les’ blog of the event:

Rickmansworth & District Horticultural Society has been in existence since 1936 and it was a real pleasure to be invited to attend and present the prizes at their Spring Flower Show. As you can see from my photos on Flickr (link below), it’s not just about Horticulture, there were also Domestic, Handicraft, Photographic and Junior Classes. It was a delight to meet the exhibitors and  view their accomplishments which were on show for all to see.  It made me yearn to get out into my greenhouse, vacated over the last 8 years,  as being a councillor I never seem to find the time. We were welcomed by Mary Weatherilt, membership secretary, and Vic Hind the Chairman and shown the exhibits. The society has grown from strength to strength and now has 550 members, many of them present and it was good to see so many proud and happy people, willing to share their hobby.
