The Albury Show 2015

Debbie Shepherd

The 2015 Albury Show was a great success despite the periods of rain. The numbers were only slightly down on last year, with the rain on midday on Saturday accounting for the drop. After that the crowd picked up and were on par with previous years.
Entries for the Photography section were rewarding with some quality images on display.
We had the side awing for the photography section to ourselves to try our this year, with only poor lighting the only drawback.
A big thank you to Debbie and her helpers, for setting up and pulling down the competition.
