The weather on August Bank Holiday was good, so all the months of planning paid off and produced a wonderful show. It’s not just me saying that! We had plenty of feedback from various sources praising all aspects of the Show. I was very impressed with the enthusiasm of the show committee members and the huge amount of work they put in to the preparations and staging of the Show. Attendance was good; at the peak buses were bringing people from the park and ride every 10 minutes or so. The entries in the horticultural competitions were up by about 200 on last year and the standard was very high. It really seemed we catered for all the family and the Horticultural Society’s aim of encouraging interest in horticulture was achieved. Our Autumn season of talks began with an informative talk by Peter Gregory who brought us up to date on recent developments in the genetics of fruit and also at Wisley where a new science block is being built with facilities for visitors as well as for RHS research staff. Finally don’t forget to visit the hut for a seed catalogue, garlic and onion sets, and anything else you need for your garden during autumn and winter.Lyn Davies (Chair)
