Dorchester Spring Flower Show 2017

Photos from the day (we hope to add some more after Easter):

A great spring show on a beautiful spring day – it really doesn’t get much better than that. At the last few shows we had been asking everyone just to enter a few more classes, or get one more person to enter the show, and you were listening, so thank you. Entries this year nearly doubled from 2016, and it really showed. Our long-serving flower and vegetable judge John Alcock retired this year (thanks John, for everything) and it was a pleasure to hear the new judge say that he was bowled over by the quality and quantity of our entries.

Huge thanks to the committee for all their hard work in making the show run so smoothly. Jenny Nudds retired this year after more than thirty years of service; it was very sad to see her go but we’re so grateful for everything she did. This leaves a small and very experienced committee but we could still do with a bit more assistance, especially on the day of the show – do contact me if you could help. And see you all on the 2nd September for the Autumn Show.
