What a Show!

Our first show for three years was a great success.

A very big thank you to all of our entrants, who between them provided almost 200 wonderful exhibits.  A great effort on such a frosty 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!

And thank you to all those who came along in the afternoon to enjoy the scrumptious cakes with tea, buy a book or a plant and take a chance with a raffle ticket. With members and guests, there were 181 people, our best attendance for some years.

Roll on July 9th and our Summer Show!

Thank you to those budding bakers who have asked for clarification on the tin size for the Lemon Drizzle cake recipe, class 67.  The tin to be used is a 2lb loaf tin, we appreciate these come is slightly different sizes and this is fine.

Any questions, please contact Pamela Wright at shows@grayshottgardeners.net.

Shows

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.
