The 2009 Spring Show was a great success with 336 entries and a sunny afternoon to bring out the crowds who duly flocked to the King Edward Hall to view the wide ranging exhibits. On entering the hall you were initially greeted by a beacon of golden light from all the daffodils which were nicely contrasted by the colours of all the other spring flowers. You could not but help wonder if there were any flowers left in Lindfield’s gardens!

But there was so much more to see. The flower arrangements were delightful and the cookery exhibits very tempting. There were very skilfully made handicraft exhibits and as usual at the spring show had a large number of most impressive photographic entries. The Junior Classes showed work of a very high standard and the Easter Bonnets in particular were much admired (see the photographs). Although it is not the time of year to have a large number of vegetable exhibits there were nevertheless several entries, all of which had survived the winter as if it had been a mild one!

Finally there were the home made cakes and tea for all to enjoy. And judging by the crowds who did so, the residents and visitors alike all had healthy appetites.
