At the 2017 Annual General Meeting the President of the Daffodil Society Jackie Petherbridge presented Show secretary Gill Griffin with the George Tarry Award.
Gill’s workload was doubled last year with the launch of the Daffodil Society late competition at Henry Garden Centre in addition to the Daffodil show at Coughton Court. Gill’s calm and methodical approach ensures that the show administration and records are in good order.
In addition Gill is Secretary to the SEEDS and Knebworth Society shows.
Anyone who has held the position of show secretary for just one show knows that it can be an arduous task but to undertake this pivotal role for four shows per season over a period of years takes some doing. Gill quietly works away in the background producing all the paper work required to run the shows, ordering rosettes and medals and dealing with exhibitors…….and their many mishaps with efficiency and good humour. When it is all over Gill still has all the reporting and the after show work to complete.
Many thanks Gill, we appreciate all that you do.
