You can use those numbers in several ways. One says that having the main annual show at Leatherhead has encouraged would be local (Surrey) side-liners to join the society. You could use them to justify having a Leatherhead exhibition as it is nearest to the largest percentage of the society. Or could say that the the main annual exhibtion should be in Glasgow as the society would like to encourage more Scots to become members.
