BEEDING in Bloom held its main fundraising event of the year in the chairman’s garden on Sunday.
People relaxed in the sunshine and tucked into cream tea in Dudley and Sarah Rushmere’s garden at Farthings, in Henfield Road, Upper Beeding, and took advantage of a plant sale.
About £400 was raised for the group, which organises the planting of hanging baskets and containers around the village, as well as caring for the flower beds.
During the afternoon, Mr Rushmere announced the results of the group’s annual garden competition and handed out the prizes.
Joan and Roger Hornsby won the Jim Heritage Cup for their garden in Dawn Crescent, judged the best garden overall.
Other results were:
Best allotment: Jeff Dunstone. Highly commended: Mike Piper and Roger Hornsby.
Mainly perennials: Joan and Roger Hornsby. Highly commended: Lynda Piper.
Courtyard: Brenda Emsley.
Newcomer (entering the competition for the first time): Christine Hough.
Hanging baskets and containers: Belinda Elson.
