Just returned from an excellent AGS national show at Pudsey in West Yorkshire held today; 19th June 2010 and I am thrilled to announce that the Farrer Medal was won by one of the alpine world's great characters; Tommy Anderson from Kendal with a superb Androsace spinulifera. This was Tommy's first Farrer Medal, but not his first 'Best in Show' (a Farrer or Forrest Medal is not always awarded) - hearty congratulations to you Tommy from all your friends in the alpine fraternity.

Congratulations are also in order for Eric Rainford and Ian Instone (and their enthusiastic helpers) - joint show secretaries of another wonderful event.

The winner of the hotly contested Pudsey Pig contest was shorts-wearing Colin Dolding - seen below with his prestigious trophy - a fledgling 'piglet' with little to recommend him in the way of experience or excess body-weight, he scooped the prize with ease, finishing off cottage pie and all the trimmings, the entire contents of the gravy jug and a large helping of apple pie and custard. Where did he put it all? Congratulations Colin and antacid relief!

I'll post some of mine which hopefully don't duplicate too many of those already shown

Large 3 pan class shown by Martin and Anna Sheader, consisting of:

Aptosimon procumbens and Campanula myrtifolia at the back, and Ourisia x bitternensis "Cliftonville Pink"

The Farrer medal winning plant, Androsace spinulifera, shown by Tommy Anderson (lurking at the back right of the picture)

3 neat ferns shown by Ivor Betteridge:

Aspenium ceterach

Polystichum lemmonii

Cheilanthes wootonii

Campanula zangezura shown by John and Clare Dower. The name was not certain, but it got a PC from Joint Rock and the identity will be confirmed in due course

Phlox pulvinata blue form shown by Brian Burrow

Dactylorhiza fuchsii shown by John and Clare Dower
