Firstly I just wanted to say a huuuuuuge thank you to all of you for the effort & time you put in to make this such an amazing show. Can you please forward this to all the NDS bodies who were here over the week as I don’t have emails for everyone.
When I was sitting by the door doing the people’s competition it was lovely to see the looks on people’s faces and hear the comments as they came through the door and saw the displays. One woman was so excited she was shaking.
It was a record year for visitors to the Show this year. Total for the week 54,098.
I spent a few hours yesterday browsing through dahlia supplier sites – and blame you all for the fact that I’m now going to have to find space in the garden for more dahlias!
And again thank you for my NDS membership. I really was touched by that – everyone from the NDS has always been so friendly and welcoming, it really is my favourite show weekend and I thoroughly enjoy working with you all to put on such an amazing show. Although I do feel guilty taking any of the credit because you do all put in the hard work throughout the year and over the week. Vanessa receives her NDS memerbship from Show manager Ron Thomas, together with Cyril and June.
The People’s Choice winners were all so pleased and excited – so hopefully we’ll see them all back next year.
