Corby Glen and District Horticultural Society held its annual open show at The Ron DawsonMemorial Hall, on Sunday.

Despite fewer entries in comparison to previous years, the committee reported that the “previously established high quality of entries was maintained, especially the floral, vegetable and photographic classes”.

The Willoughby Cup for the best exhibit in the show, went to a vase of five ‘Billy Bell’ large intermediate chrysanthemums, entered by Wendy Parrott.

A spokesman said: “The committee looks forward to the 2015 show and hope it returns to the high level of entries achieved in previous years.”
