Another well supported show here in East Lancashire with 132 exhibits in the daffodil sections, 257 blooms in all.
The Daffodil Society Bronze Medal for Best Bloom in Show was awarded to Frank Hartnell for ‘Inverpolly’.
The Daffodil Championship Trophy went to Alan Greenwood in the three vases of three stems class for ‘Aircastle’. ‘Unique’ and an unnamed Div.2 bloom (possibly ‘Bionic’).
It’s Alan’s eightieth birthday next year and it just shows that growing and showing prize winning daffodils keeps you going!
The Samuel Twynham Memorial Trophy for six stems in six separate vases was taken by Tom Alty for ‘Aircastle’, ‘Kingham’, ‘Gay Kybo’, ‘Golden Joy’, ‘Avalanche’ and ‘Sportsman’. Tom also received a Diploma for ‘Cape Cornwall’.
John Gott received a Diploma for ‘Rapture’.
Colne Society will be celebrating their centenary in 2015 and would like to borrow any photographs or memorabilia to put on display. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
