Woman takes cup for most points in show for third time in four years

JACQUELINE WILKINS once again won the most titles at Goring Village Greenfingers’ ninth annual spring show.

JACQUELINE WILKINS once again won the most titles at Goring Village Greenfingers’ ninth annual spring show.

She took home the Davis Cup for most points in show and came top in eight individual classes. Six were for her flowers and the other two were for cookery.

Mrs Wilkins, of Clevemead, Goring, previously won the trophy in 2013 and 2014.

An Easter bonnet by Doreen Lawrence was named the best adult entry while a vase of hellebores with five stems by Chloe Coutts was best in the children’s category.

Sunday’s event at the village hall included a plant sale and there were refreshments available throughout the day. Patricia Bradstock, chairwoman of Greenfingers, said: “It was good that we chose the Easter Saturday because it provided a good theme for the show.

“We had slightly fewer entries than last year but the standard was very high and our judges found it difficult to pick the best daffodils.

“We wondered whether anyone would turn up because the weather was so poor but it was very busy.”
