Entries to Bellochantuy bulb show exceeded expectations and bulbs in particular bloomed, despite the weather conditions.

The competition was ably judged by Helen Steele and Jessie Main from Largieside SWI, and Jane Griffiths from the Clachan group.

There were competitions not only for those with green fingers, but also for those who enjoy knitting, photography, art and baking.

There were many entries for each class and members enjoyed tea and biscuits while inspecting them.
