Have your say

It dawned hot and sunny on Saturday, August 18 – a perfect day for the Harting Horticultural Summer Show in the marquee at the War Memorial Playing Field in South Harting.

Once again the judges were impressed by the high standard of exhibits. There were some outstanding flower arrangements, the Jubilee theme attracting more exhibitors than in recent years.

The men-only flower arrangement class was won by a ten-year-old boy. There was also an encouraging increase in children’s exhibits.

The marquee was full of colour and enjoyed by many visitors in the afternoon.
