Minutes of previous meeting were read & passed.
The Hon. Secretary read letter received from Mr Needham with regard to the prize for Novice Class offered by him when he expressed a preference for its being given
It was also decided to arrange that three prizes be given in the Novice Class (if there were so many Exhibitors) – Mr John Taylor kindly offering to give a writing case – and the other prize was left for arrangement later.
The question of transferring stands from the amateur to the open class for judgement was resumed from last meeting when finally it was proposed by Mr A. Moorhouse & seconded by Mr Whitworth that an exhibitor be permitted to rearrange or deal with his stands & flowers in any way he may deem most desirable.
The question of number of points as a basis for judgement was again considered & it was agreed to leave the matter with the judges.
The Hon. Secretary was instructed with to write to Mr G. Hill asking him to officiate as a judge in the amateur exhibition if he did not intend to be an exhibitor.
