The Sarratt Horticultural Society held its Autumn Show on the 9th September.  It was a very hot September day at the end of an exceptionally hot week.  The growing conditions this year had been most challenging with a cold winter, very hot May and June and cold and wet July and August.   Many congratulations are deserved for those who persevered and had flowers and produce to make the Show a wonderful sight. 


The Dahlia Trophy was won by Sarah Altman who displayed some marvellous blooms. The Cups for the best roses and ‘other flowers’ were awarded to Steven Booth whilst Pam Dickins was the winner of the ‘Best Bloom’ in the Show for her beautiful rose. 


A fantastic array of fruit and vegetables was on display with Mike Rogers being the winner.  Sue LaFarge was awarded the ‘Best Vegetable’ certificate for her runner beans.


The cookery section had some very appetising offerings, which, unfortunately, only the judge was allowed to taste.  Sarah Dobson was the winner of a close competition and Sarah Altman won the Staughton Cup for the best jam.


There were many beautiful exhibits in the Arts & Crafts section with Philip Beausire’s efforts earning him the trophy. 


The children's classes were won by Emily Tyler and Archie Warpole and the Haynes family won a trophy for the most points scored by a family. 


To encourage new entrants, the Merle Liddy trophy is awarded to the best novice entrant.  On this occasion, Julie Mansi was rewarded for her excellent cookery.  Overall, the most points in the Show led Steven Booth to be the winner with him also winning a cup for the most points in both the Spring and Autumn Shows!


When the Show was opened to the public in the afternoon, many people braved the heat of the day and were rewarded with a magnificent display of Sarratt’s exhibits.  And they were able to enjoy it with tea, coffee and some magnificent cakes to round off a lovely day.


Don’t forget to come to the SHS AGM on the 18th October at 8:00pm, in The Village Hall and hear our guest speaker, Chris Day discussing Gardening With Climate Change
