Members of the New Plymouth Fuchsia 2000 group have enjoyed their mid-winter luncheon and prize-giving in Waitara. It was almost a full turnout with just two members unable to attend. Following lunch Club President Gwen Thomson introduced our guests, Loraine and Pamela, daughters of the late Doug & Rite Proffit and announced the winners of our Fuchsia season.
The Presidents Bowl, awarded by Patron, Marion Prestney for the Blooms competition, went to Annabel Capper who consistently displayed well picked blooms in the single, double and stem categories. Second place went to Marion Prestney and third place Marlene Adams.
Our competition plant this season was Tausandsassa. Harry Smith was the first time winner of the Glentworth Novice Cup, presented by Club President Gwen Thomson. Well Done Harry! Loraine and Pamela presented the Proffit trophy to Major Mawson for first place in the Presidents Cup competition plant division. Well Done Major! Second place went to Mel Bonner and in third place was Annabel Capper.
