Pinks Championship Show Birtley 13th July 2013

The show had excellent weather maybe a little too good in the afternoon it was very warm. We expected numbers to be down due to the long winter and virtually no Spring.
We did managed to have over 200 blooms and stems however. The championship class of 3 vases 5 stems per vase had 3 entries and was won by Reg Willis from East Yorks. Best vase in show went to R B Potter with his vase of 12 excellent Anders Carnival.
