Burnham-On-Sea Horticultural Show 2015 – full photos and results

Hundreds of colourful entries – from flowers and vegetables to photos and crafts – went on display at Burnham-On-Sea Horticultural Society’s 47th annual show on Saturday (August 8th).

Residents from across the Burnham area displayed their skills at the long-running event, which was held at Burnham Community Centre in Berrow Road.

The Society’s John Chinn, above, told “The standard of entries was again very high and, even though there have been some challenging growing conditions the overall number of entries was about the same as last year.”

The judges said the quality had again been high despite a late growing season. Full results are shown below.
