Visitors admire the displays at Leuchars & District Flower Show.

Leuchars and District Gardening and Crafts Club recently held its annual summer flower show in the Burnside Hall, Balmullo, which attracted a large audience despite the poor weather.

The show was opened by David Wilson, vice president, who said he was very impressed by the quality and quantity of the exhibits and congratulated the exhibitors and committee on putting on a magnificent show.

The show consisted of exhibits from cut flowers to hens’ eggs and judges said they felt that the standard of the exhibits was high. Overall the number of entries have remained fairly static with increases this year in cut flowers and floral art, with exhibitors coming from as far as Arbroath and South Queensferry.

At the presentation ceremony the chairman, Gwenyth Mitchell, thanked all the exhibitors for their contributions without whom there would be no show. She also thanked the committee for their hard work throughout the year and all the people who come along to help behind the scenes setting up the show and working to run the show on the day. She then introduced Margaret Hamilton from the local doctors’ surgery to present the trophies. Margaret was presented with a bouquet of flowers by Iona Pasley.

After the raffle draw a special presentation was made to Mr and Mrs Falconer in thanks for their help over a number of years.

Trophy winners and full results were as follows:
