Return of an Old Trophy to the Society

Earlier this year Mr. Donald Baxter from Newarthill was clearing out his loft, when he came across an old trophy. The trophy was inscribed:-

Presented to the S.N.C. & D. Society by Andrew M. Bryce ESQ, Hon. President, for 12 vases Disbudded Chrysanthemums’

The Society was formed in 1932 and the first winner in 1934 was a Mr. John Beattie from Bothwell.

Thereafter in 1935 & 1936 the Trophy was won by a Mr. Donald Fergusson from Newarthill.

The trophy is also engraved ‘Finally won by Donald Fergusson 1937’

In those days if it was won in three consecutive years by the same person, they were presented with and allowed to keep the trophy.

Donald Fergusson was the grand-father of Donald Baxter.

Mr. Baxter made contact with the Society and has kindly offered to return the trophy. He had a plaque attached to the trophy which reads:

Returned to the S.N.C. & D. Society in June 2017 by the family of Donald Fergusson’

He also commissioned a presentation box lined with blue silk.

The Society is indebted to the family of Donald Fergusson for their kind and thoughtful gesture.

Donald Baxter has prepared a brief history of his grand-father and his achievements.
