Sylvia Harris, vice chairman of Haywards Heath Horticultural Society, said: “Our show was well attended and everyone enjoyed a colourful show of amazing daffodils on display, these were mainly provided by our president Dave Vivash who won five classes.

“Many people were interested to see the handmade poppies being made by some of our members and these will be shown in the Orchards shopping centre in Haywards Heath later in the year at Strictly Poppies .

“The show judges enjoyed a delicious homemade lunch and afternoon tea. Town mayor James Knight was charming and presented the cups and certificates to all winning competitors listed below.”

This year’s awards included The Coming of Age Trophy, Daffodil Society Bronze Medal, Best Bloom in Show and Best Vase of Daffodils.
