Green fingers were hard at work in preparation for Saturday's Spring Symphony flower show at Old Windsor Memorial Hall.

Members of the Old Windsor Flower Club set to work for three hours late into the evening of Friday, April 11, in a bid to prepare their colourful arrangements.

They were up early the following morning and back at the Straight Road venue for 8am to spend another three hours putting the finishing touches to their budding show-winners.

When their time was up they were ushered out of the hall to leave their creations for the judge's reckoning.

The area judge for the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies in Bucks Berks and Oxon, Shirley Sexton, was suitably impressed with what was on show.

"It's excellent, really excellent," she said.

Once the scores were tallied, the venue was opened for the public to come in and browse the floral displays - prepared by everyone from six-year-olds up to entrants in their 70s.

"Our aim is to encourage as many people as possible," said club chairman Alison Mount.

"The standard is very high, but we've always had a high standard here."
