The Foggie Gossip
Flower Show Special     

This year's Foggie Flower Show took place on 15 August 2009.  It was officially opened by Brian Pack, retired Chief Executive of Aberdeen & Northern Marts Group.

On the morning of the show the weather was miserable, dreich and wet but at lunchtime, by good fortune, the sky cleared and it turned out a very warm and sunny day.  The main tent offered a magnificent display of entries in all sections: fruit, vegetables, floral, arts and crafts, home-made produce and more. The field sports and entertainment proved ever-popular, as were other displays.
