Lots of people visited the allotments to see the show, buy produce, bric-a-brac, raffle tickets, have a piece of cake and a cup of tea. Thank you to all the people who helped on the day and those who helped setting things up, especially George who has spent a lot of time growing all the produce we sold on the day. It wouldn’t be possible to hold our open days and shows without all the help that we get.
This year we will be holding our 8th Annual Flower and Vegetable Show on Saturday 15th of August.
We started back in 2008 as a small show with only 27 classes and each year we’ve grown bigger and better.
Last year we had another very successful show, with the judge commenting that all of entries were at a very high standard. We really want to encourage more of our new plot holders to enter the show. It’s great fun and there’s lots of people who will give you help and advice. We have a novice section which is great for beginners to try out.
We have a wide range of classes including vegetables, flowers, baking, preserves, photography, junior, novice and hens eggs.
I hope to see lots of entries in this year’s show, remember if you need any help or advice let us know.
