A FANTASTIC day of horticultural wonder saw a range of creations at a village flower show.

The North Mundham Flower group held its annual show on Saturday in the village hall, with a range of inventive displays on show.

Group chairman Rosemary Jenkins said: “It was a great success, I think we had well over 100 people visiting which was great.”

This was the 49th anniversary of the club after it was formed in 1966 and it is now gearing up for its 50th anniversary show in 2016.

Competitors had a range of categories to enter on Saturday, including: 6am – rise and shine; 1pm – hickory dickory dock and 24 hours – a pedestal to reflect the theme of night and day.

“We try to do a theme for the day and I think it worked,” said Rosemary.

“It’s just amazing. You think ‘what are people going to do?’ It’s amazing what people come up with.”

She said no two entries were ever the same and club members had great fun in coming up with their designs and exhibiting.

Janet Evans, from Blooms of Chichester, judged the entries. Rosemary reported that Janet had said the standard of entries was getting better every 
year.

Special congratulations went to Diana Shambrook, who entered five classes and came first in two and second in two and had the highest number of points overall.

Rosemary added that she worked with a ‘wonderful and very supportive’ committee.
