email from Shrewsbury show!
I recently sent an email to the Shrewsbury flower show about the removal of classes (i did mention this in my “Busy” blog).
When i have sent letters to the show secretary in the past i have found replys that scirt around the subject, or i just havn’t had a reply. To be honest i didn’t expect a reply.
I had an email from someone to say that the email was being passed to the marque manager. To my surprise i have received a very nice email from the marque manager. He has explained that class 6 and class 1 have been combined, so now there doesn’t have to be 3 distinct types of plant – there can be a display of just Begonias. The problem is that the stand is bigger, i would have to make sure i had enough plants, and enough help / someone to drive a van when we bring the plants back. Time is also a problem and cost of hiring a van (which is why i haven’t entered a stand last year).
The email says he wants to talk with exhibitors, and says if i ask a steward on show day they will contact him and we can have a chat.
Hopefully he can assure me that the class 1 isn’t also going to be withdrawn without warning, meaning a lot of work going to waste. If there aren’t assurances i will have to look out for an alternative show that i can display a stand at – not too far away. I look forward to putyting up a display stand again, whether it be at Shrewsbury or elsewhere.
This is the class 1 stand in 2005, Stan always did class 1 (i used to help, that how i got interested in shows and Begonias).
Class 6 – 2007 & 2008, 2008 my stand and another exhibitors stand
I didn’t enter the stand last year, but this is class6 by another exhibitor. Top quality. Class 6 is one of the classes removed!
