Chairman Margaret Lowman says

The Committee hopes that all members will endeavour to make this, our twenty-second show, a great success by entering as many classes as possible. Not only does every extra entry mean a better, more interesting competition and an attractive display for all to enjoy it also gains an additional point counting towards the section and overall show competitions.
