Just back from the AGS North Midland Show at Chesterfield today and delighted to announce that the show, though reduced in quantity of exhibits, was as successful and as pleasing to the eye as always. Hearty congratulations to Show Secretary; John Savage and his well-drilled team on such a splendid event.

The Farrer Medal for the best exhibit in the show was won by North Wales stalwart, Ian Leslie from Bangor with a remarkable flowering dome of Benthiamella patagonica. His fifth Farrer or Forrest Medal, I believe. Congratulations to one of nicest people on the show scene.

Congratulations to Ian Leslie - I think he has one or two Forrest medals, Cliff, so this maybe his fifth, sixth or even seventh major triumph.

Thanks Maggi and Ron.

A whole raft of images to post now, all from North Midland Show.

A special mention for Ju Bramley who worked tirelessly throughout the day and even encouraged her grandson to successfully exhibit.
