Harrogate 2019 Autumn Show
We had a new team erecting the stand for the Autumn show, Peter and Kathy Booker decided to try a full Floral Display and I am delighted to say they won a prestigious Gold Medal they were ably assisted by Peter Lax and Hazel Hare with thanks to Tony Booker for artwork and draft design. The theme was a Rainbow to show the beautiful colours Carnations have achieved over the Seventy years of the BNCS. It was decided to help a very worthy cause in the Rainbow Trust Children's Charity over the period of the show.
