Mata­mata Rose So­ci­ety pa­troness Kath Ack­royd is a long-time rose en­thu­si­ast, – the smell is what she loves the most. She of­ten gives her blooms away, say­ing ‘‘ev­ery­one gets a rose when they come to visit me’’.

She said she feels very priv­i­leged to be pa­troness of the so­ci­ety and that ‘‘they are a lovely lot of girls who keep me on my toes’’.

She gave en­trants a help­ing hand and also en­tered three of her own blooms in this year’s com­pe­ti­tion.

Her favourite rose is Auck­land Metro.
