The Yorkshire and Humberside Area Show was
again well attended with plenty of exhibits. This was testament to the
hard work of the
retiring Area Rep Jeff Rhodes. Jeff has served the
society in various rolls for many years. The society hopes that a new
Area Rep will come forward to take the reins in the future.
The man of the show this year was Malcolm
Ellis who won both Bronze Medals for best pot with Helen Main and Best
Cut Bloom with Apricot Delight. Malcolms exhibit for 3 single stem pot
plants also won the Best Exhibit in Show award. Christine Yeardsley
again won the 3 pot unrestricted class.
Jeff Rhodes won all the foliage classes
including the group class. His exhibits were of a high standard and
showed the variation of leaf form and growth habit of these types. Derek
Telford again visited the show although not as a exhibitor having
retired from exhibiting last year at the age of 92 years.
Thank you all the exhibitors for making it a
success. My personal thanks to Andrew MacDougall who ably assisted me
with the judging.
