The results of the magnificent weather were more than evident at Kirriemuir and District Gardening Association’s annual spring show.
There was a good display of daffodils in the Old Parish Church Hall and a number of new entrants, including the Kirriemuir Community Allotment Association and Fairlie House Community Garden.
The secretary paid tribute to Stewart Ramsay, the previous chairman, who died earlier in the year before new chairman Mrs Sheila Bruce welcomed everyone and handed over to Rev Malcolm Rooney, minister of the Glens & Kirriemuir Old Parish Church, who presented prizes as follows:-
