BRITISH Fuchsia Society judge Geoff Smith of Nottingham visited Emneth for Wisbech and District Pelargonium Society's seventh show.

Although entries were down on previous years because of the recent heatwave, organisers were delighted with the plants from 14 exhibitors and the number of visitors to the Central Hall during the weekend.

During the year the society has raised about £600 which will be handed over to the palliative care units at the North Cambs Hospital, Wisbech, and Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King's Lynn.

Joan Rivett, of Friday Bridge, won the award for best exhibit in the show. John Green was runner-up and won the award for gaining most points.

Winner of the junior section was nine-year-old Amy Milligan. Sister and brother Karen and Simon Welbourn won second and third prizes.

It was flowers all the way at Emneth over the weekend. When visitors had finished studying the blooms at the Central Hall they could visit the Methodist Church for the annual flower festival.
