Many thanks to all the committee for putting on todays show. The exhibitors are always being thanked for attending, but without the hard work of committees like yours we would have nowhere to show our flowers, plants, vegetables and fruit. Many thanks to all.

From Richard Greene in Australia. I have been following all the great historic restorations at PEnicuik house and the lost gardens. My last visit to the area was in 2007 when little was happening. My relatives include James FAirbairn the Estate Factor to BARON Clerk in 1720/1744. What may be of interest is the fact that his son a John Fairbairn born in 1742 was the great Botanic gardener the head curator in CHelsea physic garden in 1780 until he died in garden in 1814. He is not mentioned in local history but Sir Joseph Banks gave him many plants gathered from around the world. Regard from an Australian with many ancestors from your area.
