The splendid weather encouraged pepple to visit Whitby Chrysanthemum Society Late Show at St John Ambulance Hall in Whitby.

They were dazzled by the glorious array of colours of the chrysanthemums and plants on the benches, which rivalled the autumnal display out of doors.

Mr D Booth, the judge from Hull, undertook a meticulous inspection of the flowers and was impressed by the quality of the flowers at a local show.

Mr J Edmonds, from Scarborough, was challenged by the variety and quantity of excellent vegetables for his consideration and complimented growers on the results of their endeavours.

Entries in both flower and vegetable classes were up from 2014, inspite of difficult growing conditions throughout the year and committee members were encouraged to see novice classes had attracted a new grower.

Growers from outside the local area gave encouraging support to the show, and the honours were shared between Vic Thomas and Dave Arbon from Redcar, Dave Andrews and G Peacock from Richmond. Mr Rideout from Rosedale Abbey won the best exhibit between the pot plant classes, Trevor Legg from Roxby and Keith Abel from Leconfield shared the vegetable awards.
