The Garden Club Autumn Show – Saturday 1st September 2018.
Surely you have some veg or flowers you could enter despite the long hot drought of a summer or maybe a bit of handicraft or jam, or even a cake? A grand afternoon is almost guaranteed at this traditional annual event and we are hoping the village will support the event by entering some of the classes and then by coming along for afternoon tea.
In line with the discussion and decisions taken before last year’s show the schedule has been revised. There will be no distinction between Village and Open classes so that now all classes are open to anyone who is a member of the Garden Club whether villager or not. As a result of this the allotting of the trophies to the various classes has had to be reviewed and a few changes made. We hope this will result in a better show (however there will be no class for desert plants!) with much less duplication of classes. All the favourite classes are there for you – pot plants, flower arrangements, handicrafts, flowers and vegetables.
The Garden Club Flower and Produce Show will be open from 2 pm to 4.30 pm on Saturday September 1st in the Memorial Hall .
Remember Saturday 7th April 2018?
