Matamata Chronicle - - News - By NICKI DAVIDSON

Show off your blooms.

That’s the mes­sage from the Mata­mata Rose So­ci­ety’s Joy Hawes as their an­nual Rose Show at the Mata­mata Me­mo­rial Cen­tre fast ap­proaches.

Last year 50 en­trants from as far away as Whangarei dis­played a stun­ning range of roses and Mrs Hawes said it would be fan­tas­tic to top that ef­fort this year.

‘‘We wel­come en­tries from any­one and we’d love to see more from the chil­dren and re­ally en­cour­age a love for flow­ers.

‘‘ There is also a first-time ex­hibitors sec­tion so if you have some beau­ti­ful blooms in your gar­den, en­ter them,’’ she said.

‘‘Com­mit­tee mem­bers will be there to help peo­ple set up – there is a big sup­port crew.’’
