Liz Jones, Judy Cantrell, Natasha Lee and Cherie Mason welcomed the public to the event
The Cooloola Coast Local Ambulance Committee was once again very pleased with the public response to their annual Flower Show. The number of entries in the flower and plant sections exceeded expectations with over 200 displays being presented.
The judges commented that it was a most impressive showing, so many thanks to all those people who took the time to place an entry in the competition.
The prizes for the winning entries were presented by Wilbur Fahey, OIC Tin Can Bay Ambulance. The Champions in each section were Linda Brown for Floral Work, Rod Jordan for Cut Flowers, Caroline Taylor for Container Plants and Molly Dallinger for the Juniors.
Mary Boyce and Molly Dallinger were awarded Champions for the Open and Junior Photography sections respectively.
This year there was also a colouring competition for the school children and they participated with great enthusiasm. There were a large number of entries and the winners of a gardening starter kit were Chloe Bath and Ella Falconer.
Apart from the exhibitors, the Flower Show would not be possible without the support of various clubs and individuals and the committee offers our thanks to all those involved.
Cooloola Coast Art Group staged a grand display of local art which received no end of positive comments from the visiting public; establishing further the true talents that thrive within our small community, and thanks all who participated.
The money raised from the show will be used to purchase equipment for our local Ambulance Service including the new station at Rainbow Beach when construction is completed early next year.
