We thought the show last year was one of the best we have ever had, but this year's was even better! With 567 exhibits and 118 exhibitors, this must have been the best ever.    The vegetable classes were outstanding and with almost twice as many exhibits as last year,  we had a lot of problems on the Friday evening before the show  finding enough tables to accommodate them.
Mrs. Monica Bate of M.T.B. Motors, one of the main sponsors of the show, is seen here presenting Stuart Clensy from Maghull with  his awards.
