Whitby and District Pot Leek Society Annual Show was held at the Rugby Club, Whitby, on Sunday 25 September.

After a difficult growing season with lack of sunshine and rain playing a big part, the size and quality of the leeks and disease hitting the last few weeks of growing, kept the number of entrants down.

However, some growers managed to produce some very clean quality leeks and put on a good show and display.

Results as follows:

Members main Class 1: 1 Chris Harrison, 2 Gilbert Harrison, 3 Howard Fields, 4 Ted Gibson; Members Gift Class 2: 1 Chris Harrison, 2 Gilbert Harrison, 3 Dennis Roper; Members Intermediate Class 3: 1 Chris Harrison, 2 Gilbert Harrison, 3 Richard Jackson; Open Pot Class 4: 1 Chris Harrison, 2 Gilbert Harrison, 3 Gilbert Harrison; Open Blanch Class 5: 1 Howard Fields, 2 Howard Fields, 3 Ted Gibson; Members Onion class 6: 1 Ted Gibson, 2 Gilbert Harrison, 3 Alan Atkinson; Members Vase flowers Class 7: 1 Alan Atkinson, 2 Gilbert Harrison, 3 Ted Gibson; Best leek in Show: Chris Harrison; Fairways Trophy for Class 1: Chris Harrison; Eileen Hudspith Trophy Class 4: Chris Harrison.

Chairman Doug Stevenson said the Harrison’s father and son had had remarkable year in this difficult season.

Big thanks to the Rugby Club judge Colin Wilks and all who support the club over the year.
