Champion Blooms of the Show

The Champion Blooms of the National Show New Zealand Camellia Society

Bethwaite Memorial Trophy
This is awarded for the Best Bloom at the National Show. This tray was donated by the Wanganui Branch, in memory of Mr F. H. Bethwaite. He was a foundation member of the society, a member of the council and a stalwart member of the Wanganui Branch. He died suddenly shortly before the 1961 National Show, held in Wanganui. The Branch donated the trophy soon afterwards.
