74th Annual Flower Show 20th August St Catherine’s Church Centre

Posted August 25th, 2016 by Mike Savage

 

A poor show day for weather but excellent dahlias, roses and vegetable exhibits were present on the show benches. Handicrafts and photographic sections were well supported.

The Banksian medal, awarded to the exhibitor winning the most prize money in the horticultural classes and not won in the last two years, was won by Dave McDermot from our Society. This helped Dave win The Members Trophy.

The Stockport Advertiser Cup for Best in Show went to Bob Davies for his bowl of roses. He gained the most points in the rose section but, in addition, won all the prizes for chrysanthemums.

Dave Shaw from Denton was equally successful in the Dahlia section and won the trophy and medals.

Andrew Moakes from Wigan gained the most points in the vegetable classes and won the Wilkins trophy. However, Dave Shaw’s exhibit of 5 potatoes won him the N.V.S. Medal for best vegetable exhibit.

The Fuchsia Society Bronze medal was won by Dave McDermot and Tony McCarthy took the Crested Spoon. Dave also had the most points in the fuchsia classes.

Dave Walford’s  3 Dahlias won him the prize for best novice.

In the domestic section Pauline Hinchliffe gained the most points and Mike Holloway’s Victoria sandwich was judged to be the best entry in these classes.

Liz Thomson won the trophy for best handicraft exhibit. The Best Photo was taken by M Bexley

The President’s trophy for best young person’s exhibit was won by Emily Hearn.

Many thanks to all our exhibitors, sponsors and visitors.
