Weather kind to flower show

UNLIKE many weekends this summer, the weather was kind to Cockburnspath and Dunglass Estate Horticultural Society on Saturday, August 11, for their annual Flower Show and there was a good entry in all sections, particularly the baking and industrial sections.

There were also some excellent entries in the fruit, flowers and vegetables which were a credit to those exhibitors in view of the very difficult growing season this year.

The Trophy winners were as follows: School Cup - Annie Maclean/Eva Smith; Novices Cup - Skye Rae; Flower Show Cup (Baking) - Jean Virtue; Hope Sunflower Cup - Ellie Mackie; Flower Show Cup (Industrial) - Michelle Renwick; Merse Lodge Trophy - Ken Underwood; Hawthorn Cup - Ken Underwood; Jubilee Challenge Cup - Tom Kerr; Armatage Trophy - Caitlin Morrison; Frank Brading Memorial Trophy - Tom Kerr/Ken Underwood; James Glass Memorial Trophy - Tom Kerr.
