Secretary's Report

   The standard was very high for the difficult year and entries were good in most classes.  Honours in the pot plant classes were shared between John Dearn (7 pots), Lakin Earl (6 pot restricted) and Vincent Potts (species etc.).

In the cut bloom classes John Chiswell was the master, winning the 12, 6 and all the 3 pot classes. I am not sure if this has been done before, but it was certainly a magnificent achievement.                                                                                                                                                                  Report by Alan Harris.
