Dennis Williams knows his onions! So much so that he took the honours at the Cottage Inn Onion Show. It is the second time that Dennis has taken the title at the Dunstan event, but as the last time was 1994, he was determined this was going to be his year. It was the 27th year of the show which this time round said goodbye to long-serving judge Norman Laidler, who retired from the role.
