62nd Bunclody Horticultural Society Show - Major Awards

The following are the major prizes. Details of winners of all classes
will follow and hopefully you will be able to use them. Many thanks,

Bunclody Horticultural Society are delighted with their 62nd Annual
Show. It went off brilliantly. The Society would like to thank all who
participated and those who turned out to steward and helped with the
setting up. No mean trick. Many thanks also goes to James Murphy and
the BOM of Bunclody VEC for their marvellous cooperation. Thanks also
to our many sponsors and advertisers, without whom the Show would
never have gotten off the ground.

Miller, Garden Judge, and Ian Hodges, photographer of gardens, will
present an evening showing photos of gardens visited and Robert will
talk us through the various attractive garden features. Thurs, Sept
