This year marks the society’s 45th anniversary, with the show attracting 70 members from clubs across the South West as well as members of the public to admire the colourful array.

The blooms were judged across a number of aspects, including presentation, shape, colour and overall size, with society member Norm Martin awarded the title of Reserve Grand Champion for his ‘Flaming Comet’ orchid.
