Church show in spot­light

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Memory Lane -

Flower power was on the agenda for green-fin­gered Mon­k­lands res­i­dents back in 1983.

Hun­dreds of com­peti­tors, vis­i­tors and guests turned out to at­tend the hugely en­joy­able Jack­son Church flower show.

Dig­ni­taries in­cluded Labour’s Mon­k­lands East MP John Smith and his wife El­iz­a­beth, who are pic­tured in the Ad­ver­tiser edi­tion of Septem­ber 9 that year.

The hugely im­pressed pair of­fi­cially opened the bloom­ing brilliant event, held at Air­drie’s Sir John Wilson town hall.

It was the church’s 33rd an­nual show and a wide range of colour­ful blooms and bumper fresh veg eta­bles were on dis­play.
