Middleton Guardian - - FRONT PAGE -

MID­DLE­TON Bor­ough Chrysan­the­mum So­ci­ety is set to fill the town’s cricket club with colour as it holds its 103rd an­nual show.

The so­ci­ety, which formed in 1904, will bring to­gether am­a­teur hor­ti­cul­tur­al­ists, en­ter­ing vases of flow­ers in a bid to win one of the many tro­phies up for grabs at the club on Hollin Lane on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 26, from 5pm to 8pm, then on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 27, 11am to 4pm and Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 28, noon to 4pm.

Rochdale mayor, Coun Mo­hammed Za­man, and may­oress, Naaira Mo­hammed, will present the tro­phies on Sun­day at 2pm.

Alan Ormerod, so­ci­ety chair­man, said: “The show takes months of plan­ning and hard work, but when you see the fi­nal re­sult it makes one feel proud to be as­so­ci­ated with such a great bunch of peo­ple, their com­mit­ment and en­thu­si­asm is very hard to match. It has not been the best of years for our small group, with the loss of two mem­bers and oth­ers de­cid­ing to bow out.”
