After a disastrous summer and against all the odds the show this year at St. Aelreds' School was a great success.  With 72 exhibitors and 430 actual exhibits it was certainly one of the best shows we have staged in recent years
The prizes were presented this year by our Vice President Jane Davies and here we see her presenting Stuart Clensy with the Gordon Brooks Trophy and the Lewis's Ice Cream Cup.   Our Chairman Richard Jeacock is looking on
The main prize winners were:-
Stuart Clensy of Maghull
-   Gordon Brooks Trophy for most points in the show, Lewis's Ice Cream Cup for most points in the Flower Section,  National Dahlia Society silver and bronze medals, and the Royal Horticultural Society Banksian Medal.
