Dave Coates
South Coast Area Representative 1988 - 2009

   Dave and his wife Pauline joined the Society at the Southsea Show in 1975 and quickly established themselves as prominent and active members. Within a few years Dave was exhibiting at the London and National Shows in addition to Southsea.
 Hybridising has produced for him one of the most frequently exhibited begonias, Nichola Coates, named after his daughter.  Other very successful introductions are Vera Coates and most recently Emily Rose.  Dave was appointed Area Representative in 1988 and also judges at Society shows including the National.
