Perth - car parking at Dewars Centre https://www.google.com/maps/place/Dewars+Centre/@56.3946348,-3.4464392,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x48863b3c151e99f3:0x37060fb0287b2942!8m2!3d56.394634!4d-3.4442215 (https://www.google.com/maps/place/Dewars+Centre/@56.3946348,-3.4464392,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x48863b3c151e99f3:0x37060fb0287b2942!8m2!3d56.394634!4d-3.4442215)


The show manager, Alison Hogg has advised that arrangements have been made with Dewars that for those who will be at the Show all day ie exhibitors, nurseries, judges, show helpers etc there will be a nominal parking charge of around £1.  You will definitely NOT be charged the daily rate thatís displayed. The underground car park will be set aside for the use of those at the show.

Congrats to all involved in this Show!

Lots of really super plants- and the new venue looks to have worked well too. Alison Hogg, the Show Secretary, will be very pleased, as well she might be!
