Fuchsia Show 2018
Yet another venue, St Crispin Social Club, we have had three in the last three years. Although this growing season has been very challenging, to say the least, the number of entries and the quality of the plants was wonderful. The number of people visiting the show was well up on last year and judging by the entries in the visitor’s book, they were very complimentary.
Another summer of 1976!! At least we had air conditioning and this venue was great. Could you imagine what it would have been
like in a marquee?
The room was larger than last year, so we were able to have more classes. We had 15 members making 78 entries in 36 classes for the show, which resulted in 95 pots, baskets and exhibits being entered.
All things considered we had a wonderful show and I am very proud of every member who helped to put the show together, whatever was asked of them they performed in a very friendly, efficient manner.
We now have to start looking forward to 2019.
Missing from our display of photographs from the show is Michael Conroy who was able to exhibit his plants but then had to return home feeling unwell!
Michael was awarded the Lepper Cup and BFS Blue Rosette, the Sayers Silver Trophy, the BFS Crested Spoon, the John Belton Memorial Trophy and the Summers Trophy.
We hope all these awards made him feel better!
The man in the blue shirt making the presentations is the BFS Judge, Geoff Smith.
Before he began he said that all shows were down on numbers of plants exhibited because, as we all know, fuchsias do not like hot, dry weather.
All those exhibiting should be proud to have managed to get their plants to the Show!
Pam Pettitt receiving the Ray Campbell Trophy for the Best Pot or Exhibit in Show on behalf of Peter Pettitt, who was away watching the Cobblers! On the right is Peter's full basket of Daisy Bell that was awarded Best in Show. Well done, Peter! Some consolation as sadly the Cobblers lost 0-1!
