The Cambridge Branch of the British Cactus & Succulent Society's Autumn Show was held in Meldreth Village Hall for a second year.

Neil Oakman won the Ginns Medal for acheiving the highest points total in the show, with Clarke Brunt being rather surprised to win the Julia Patman Memorial Trophy for the most points by a Cambridge Branch Member.

Below, Doreen Oakman's exhibit of Conophytum plants. A stunning exhibit of 64 plants, each in a 50mm pot, showing just what can be done with this genus which isn't always as popular as it deserves to be.
