Mrs Margaret Bamford, Flower Show Chairperson, extended a warm welcome to everyone. She expressed special thanks to NEELB, Mrs Stinson, Principal of the school, and her staff, for the use of the school which provided excellent facilities for the show.

She thanked the members of Flower Show Committee and Stewards for their hard work, judges for giving of their time and expertise and the exhibitors without whom there would be no Show.

Mrs Bamford then welcomed Joanne McAllister from Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children. Joanne thanked the Committee for their invitation and for choosing this as the charity to be supported by the show. She explained that three children in Northern Ireland are diagnosed each week with cancer. She outlined the financial and emotional support given to local families who find themselves thrust into this devastating situation. £3,000,000 is needed each year to provide these services most of which comes from fundraising and public donations.

She thanked the people of Kilrea who have already been very generous in their support of this charity.

Mrs Bamford then welcomed Mrs Agnes Kennedy M.B.E., Executive Member for Lower Bann Area. Mrs Kennedy recalled as a child coming to Kilrea on her bicycle with her mother. It was an easy journey down but uphill on the way home

was not so pleasant. She recalled the involvement of Kilrea W.I. with the show since its inception back in 1947 and the generous support for charity over the years. She congratulated all who had brought entries, especially the children, and commented on the high standard of work. She hoped everyone would enjoy viewing the exhibits and had pleasure in declaring the Show open. She was then asked to present the trophies and prizes.

Mrs Bamford then welcomed members of the Murphy family who had kindly donated a trophy in memory of their father Mr Bertie Murphy who with his wife had been a keen supporter of the show over many years.

Speaking on behalf of the family, Mr William Murphy recalled how his father had been encouraged in his gardening by Rev McCullough from Drimbolg Presbyterian Church, Mrs R.W.Kelso, Lisnagrot, and Miss Maye Long who would come and help him display his produce in Kilrea Town Hall. He hoped many people would continue to get pleasure from entering the show as did his Mum and Dad over many years. He was pleased to present the cup for the first time to Roy Moon and Lee McNally for the most exhibits in the vegetable section.

Jennifer thanked Margaret Bamford for all her work and commitment as Chairperson and Mrs Kennedy for giving of her time to come to open the show and presenting the prizes. She invited everyone to look around the exhibits and enjoy some refreshments.
