Thanks to the Show Secretaries.

I would like to add my congratulations to Mike & Ju Bramley for ten years at the helm of the North Midland Show. I would also like to thank Mike & Ju for encouraging me to exhibit my plants at the group shows when they gave a talk at my local Garden Society in 2004.
