Chiswick Horticultural Society's Autumn Show
Number One Allotment sweeps the board
Chiswick Horticultural Society's Autumn Show took place at its new venue of Duke's Meadows Community Association Hall last Sunday.
There were 70 classes of entries - fruit, flowers, vegetables, jams, jellies, breads and cakes and about 200 people came along to marvel at the range of produce on display.
The prizes were awarded by journalist and broadcaster Michael Wale- including the Henniker Cup for the highest number of points in the Vegetable Class which was won by Number One Allotment set up to enable people with learning difficulties to participate in and enjoy growing fruit and vegetables.
Number One Allotment also won the coveted R.H.S. Banksian Medal for the highest total amount of points in the whole of the Horticultural Classes in the Autumn Show.
Other winners were Pat Harry who won the Johnson Cup for the highest number of points in the flower classes and Elizabeth Cameron who won the Carole Weale Memorial Cup (named after ex-committee secretary Carole Weale who has recently died from motor neurone disease) for the highest number of points in the domestic classes.
