2018 Autumn show winners

Hillingdon Council is pleased to announce the winners of this years autumn show.

The autumn show is a competition that encourages residents to exhibit their locally grown produce.

All residents of the borough, regardless of their gardening experience were eligible to enter this free competition. We are particularly keen to get younger residents involved with a dedicated children's section for under 16 years.

The competition had classes for fruit, vegetable, art, jam, chutney and blooms - so plenty of opportunity to win.
