ERNIE SAYERS 1926 - 2020
Our President, Ernie Sayers, sadly passed away just before Christmas 2020 at the age of 94.
He was the last of the members who gathered in 1967 to form our Society. He will be sadly missed by us all.

A HALF CENTURY OF BEST IN SHOWS!
Chris Woolston, a member of our Society since the 1980’s, achieved the landmark of 50 (FIFTY!) Best Exhibit in Show awards at National Shows. The first was in 1998 and this, the fiftieth, was awarded at the Northern BFS Show this year, 2018.
Pictured below is Chris with his National BFS Best Exhibit in Show award winning half-basket of Put's Folly.
However, this was not an entirely solo effort – as Chris says, “I couldn't have done this without Rosie”.
He continues, “We can now relax and show at the club shows a bit more. See you all next year.”
“Considering the weather we have had this year the plants on display at the Northants club show were very good. Well done Peter (Pettitt) for winning the Best Exhibit in Show with his basket of Daisy Bell. So nice to see all my friends again.”
Well done Chris and Rosie – what an achievement – has this ever been bettered?
