Damerham and District Horticultural Society Spring Show 2022


DAMERHAM and District Horticultural Society held their first show in three years last week.

A total of 133 vases were counted during the spring show at Damerham Village Hall on Saturday – not just daffodils but also tulips, spring flowers and flowering shrubs.

There was also a mouth-watering presentation of cakes in the cooking classes.

Thanks to Camilla Prosser and Vanessa Sherwood and their pupils at Western Downland Primary School, there were a large number of entries into the children’s classes, causing much excitement among the participants when the prizes were awarded.

The awards were presented by the society’s president, Jane Hall.
