Great Show – thank you!
The weather for the few weeks leading up to our show was somewhat challenging – so a very big thank you to all of our entrants, who between them provided almost 200 wonderful exhibits. A great effort on such a damp morning for the plants and flowers, and also some beautiful crafts and tasty home produce. The super quality of the exhibits gave the judges quite a challenge!

In the meantime, here’s a reminder of what was at the Spring Show 2022:
We hold two Shows every year, in the Spring and the Summer. The Spring Show is held on the second Saturday in April (Easter permitting) and the Summer Show is on the second Saturday in July. Staging of the exhibits takes place from 9 – 10.20am in the Village Hall, with judging following thereafter and viewing for members and the general public is from 2- 4pm. At 4pm the prizes are awarded.
Members are encouraged to enter flowers, plants, vegetables and produce from their homes. Non Members can enter any Open classes and the Photography Class. There are also Junior Classes for the under 8s and over 8 – 11s. For those of you who are novices, help is on hand from any Show Committee member who will be happy to offer support and guidance.
Our Shows are a feast for all the senses – the smell of the flowers, the spectacular flower displays, the superb home produce and photography – not to mention the plants for sale and the lovely teas and home-made cakes for refreshment.
Club members will be on hand to chat about the exhibits and the club in general.
