Caistor Flower Club show attracted many visitors, all eager to see the beautiful displays on show in the town hall and to watch the demonstration ‘Panache’ by NAFAS National Demonstrator Andrew Grisewood.
Pauline Foster spent time judging the exhibits before the doors opened to the public, who chose Jayne Merriman’s exhibit as the ‘People’s Choice’ in memory of Barbara Pywell.
