Chelsea Winners

Post by Tony R » Tue May 22, 2018 3:25 pm

Well done to all our friends and colleagues at Chelsea this year!

Not only did Southfields win GOLD yet again but they were also awarded the Diamond Jubilee Award for the best display in the Great Pavilion. This is extra special for Bryan and Linda Goodey for I believe this will be their last year at Chelsea.

Great news for Ottershaw Cacti with a GOLD too, SANBI - Kirstenbosch (GOLD) and Craig House Cacti (SILVER-GILT).

Many congratulations to Southfields in particular, who have done so much to promote our hobby for many years, as well as selling excellent plants. A richly deserved award. I'm not going to Chelsea this year, but would love to see a photo of their stand.
