Havering’s green-fingered gardening enthusiasts were treated to a fun-packed day of free activities this weekend.

The Elm Park Horticultural Guild’s Winter Flower Show took place on Saturday at the Elm Park Assembly Hall in Eyhurst Avenue.

Activities on offer included free photography classes, baking lessons and a wide range of floral arrangements and handicrafts.

Richard Mummery, the guild’s publicity officer, was pleased by the high turnout at the event this year.

He said: “It was a really, really good day – we had a much higher turnout than usual which was brilliant.

“We’re celebrating our 80th year this year so it was also a sort of celebration of that because it was our last show of 2017.”

Guests of honour included the Deputy Mayor of Havering councillor Dilip Patel, and the Deputy Lieutenant for Havering Col Markham Bryant.

Tables in the hall’s annex were also selling a wide range of handmade gifts, including cards, jewellery and locally produced honey.
