Single Bloom Show 14th August 12

Despite the weather, the first society show of the year saw 23 exhibitors put up 157 vases, about the same as last year.  40 members were present for the show. 

Novices Paul Bugden and Paul Freeman did very well, receiving some whiskey for their winning entries.  We thank Maurice Woodfield, assisted by Dave Bates for judging the show.

Below we see some of the committee with their blooms.
