BEAUTIFUL roses stole the show in Walberton.
Walberton Horticultural Society held their blooming beautiful rose show on Saturday.
The village hall, off The Street was filled with the fragrant flowers, no thanks to the badly behaved weather.
The thunder storms and heavy rain on the morning of the show affected many of the blooms, but the members still managed to produce some high class displays of roses, cut flowers and vegetables.
Floral art was also a feature of the show.
Three trophies were won by Mrs. E. Hewson; The George Drummond Memorial Trophy for the best exhibit in the Rose Classes, the Ines Brown Memorial Trophy for the highest number of points in the roses class and The Millennium Cup for the best exhibit in the mixed cut flower classes.
The Fred Ireland Cup for sweet peas was won by Mr. J. Haine, The Floral Art Salver was awarded to Mrs. J. Jackson.
