Head stew­ard Ni­cola McBur­ney es­ti­mates she had two hours and 30 min­utes sleep the night be­fore the Mata­mata Rose Show.

She ar­rived at the Me­mo­rial Cen­tre to open up at 5.30am and only just beat two ex­hibitors.

Her day was spent ‘‘try­ing to be at 600 places at once’’ di­rect­ing 12 Mata­mata Rose Show vol­un­teers, help­ing first-time ex­hibitors set up, check­ing en­tries and num­bers and re­solv­ing is­sues but she still had time to be im­pressed by the stan­dard of en­tries this year.

‘‘There were some re­ally good en­tries, some good qual­ity blooms.’’
