Recent weather conditions were a concern for both organisers and participants at Greenlaw’s annual flower show last weekend but despite the difficulties caused by the weather the exhibits were very good.
People entering the show for the first time were made very welcome and organisers were heartened that the Coleus School Challenge had gone well.
After the judges had made their decision and everyone had had a good chance to see for themselves the standard of exhibits in the horticultural, vegetable and industrial sections, Charlie McBeath invited Greenlaw Maid Hannah Hay to present the prizes at 3.30pm, followed by the drawing of raffle.
Special thanks to judges, Jackie Davidson and George Ramage who did a sterling job and a big thank you was expressed to everyone for helping to ensure another successful show.
