Despite the weather and fears for the quality of flowers entered the competition held at The Henderson Hall.

Children were also encouraged to come along and were given an Easter Egg as a thank you present.

A member of the society, Pamla Cotton, said: “We thought we would not have many daffodils in the show this year as the warm weather brought the flowering time forward, but we were not disappointed.
