First published in Helston

The first blooms of spring were celebrated when St Keverne Gardeners' Society held its annual spring show.

Taking place in the Methodist hall, the show saw 160 entries of a high standard.

There was a whole section for that most spring-like of flowers, daffodils, with another for mixed plants.

Although the show is opened to everyone, the majority of entries came from people living in the St Keverne area.

Society secretary Sylvia Day said: “We were very pleased. There was a big wedding in the village on the day and we still had a really good attendance by the public.”

Doug Stevens swept the board in the daffodil section, winning the Rozanne Whitacker Cup & Silver Gilt Medal from The Cornwall Garden Society. He also showed the best daffodil in the show winning, winning a bulb voucher from renowned daffodil grower and horticulturalist Ron Scamp.

Mr Stevens followed this up by taking the trophy for most points in the show.

The best exhibit in the other plant section was won by Pippa Englefield.

Sylvia Day won a cup for best photograph, also taking the Gold Medal Award from The Cornwall Garden Society for best exhibit in the whole show.

Mrs Day added: “Even with a difficult year weather wise the spring show was a great success, with visitors enjoying the exhibits, tea and cake and a chat. The exhibits were to a really good standard.”
