Bournmouth Orchid Society Autumn Show Allendale Centre Wimborne 30th September.

Somerset Wiltshire and Dorset Orchid Society Annual Show 16th September 2017
Once again we returned to the Primary school for the show. We arrived at 7.30am., on a sunny but misty morning.
After arranging the tables ready for the plants and the all important urn turned of for tea and coffee the displays were put together. The food for the workers went down well.
Just as we were finished we had the unexpected excitement of a hot air balloon landing on the playing field, and the spectacle of about 20 or so balloons in the sky all having left Longleat that morning. Two more landed in the recreation ground as well.
The doors were opened at 10.30 and there was a steady stream of visitors coming in to see our show.
This year we had a more prizes in the raffle which did well.
We had almost the same numbers through the door as last year so it was a great success.
