Novice or New Exhibitors?
If you are new to the showing scene, why not put your exhibits into the new NOVICE Section. If you are a little daunted by the open categories why not give this a go; enjoy it and see what happens.
Have you a Bonsai? Why not bring it along and join in the display of the Fife Bonsai Society in the lower hall.
