Secretary Mabel Birnie, who has been involved with the show for over 30 years, said: “It was a lovely show with masses of flowers. There was hardly a space in the hall. The turnout was good as well, it was very encouraging. We are always looking for new participants to take part. There was a slight scarcity of vegetable growers but the veg we did have was very good quality.”
