This year's show was held again at RHS Wisley.  With the new flooring, conditions were much better than last year.  The weather was good during staging and the  the show declared a great success, with lots of visitors and questions about dahlias. 
Our thanks go to all who helped make this a great show!

On Friday night, the competitive part of the show is replaced by the weekend show.

On the left are the team who did the swap over.  Thanks to them for their efforts.

 Also helping out was David Brown, who is the society archivist, who brought along many of his photos.

Left is the weekend bureau selling the last of the raffle tickets and also selling blooms and pot dahlias at the end of the show.

A long week for several members, however a very good one for the society.
