A horticultural society was once again excited to hold its annual autumn show.
Rainham Horticultural Society, based in Upminster Road North, Rainham, welcomed visitors to the Brenda Blakemore Centre, Davies Close, at the weekend for the special event.
Among the winners were eight-year-old Rainham Village Primary School pupil William Green for his runner beans, best bloom went to John Archer and best handicraft entry went to Joyce Russell for her cross stitch.
Marion Green from the society, who also received the prize for best cookery exhibit for her courgette cake, said: “Despite the extremely hot summer, there was a good show of flowers and vegetables although some classes were not represented.
“It was very well attended and we had lots of new entrants of all ages enter into the show.”
Next year’s shows will be held in March, July and September at the Brenda Blakemore Centre.
