Flower and Produce Show
2021 Show 28 August
After the forced cancelation of the 2020 show, schedules for this year's show have now been distributed to - hopefully- every house in the village. While the show will follow its traditional pattern we always try to have something new> This year we will have a new category for the best wild flower patch, following the interest in supporting bees and wildlife generally. If you are someone who has bought into this please enter and help to spread the message.
If you haven't received your show schedule - or you have lost it- don't worry you can down-load it here.
Please support the show and help us raise funds for our chosen charities supporting the NHS Horton Hospital and Dogs for Good.
Flower and Produce Show - An Introduction
The annual Flower and Produce Show encourages people of all ages to grow and display fruits, vegetables and flowers and to demonstrate their skill in making preserves or baking bread and cakes.
It culminates in the annual show in the Reading Room, which is always well attended and raises money for local charities.
The show itself usually takes place on the Saturday of the August bank holiday weekend. To take account of the season, judging of the garden classes takes place in June and of hanging baskets in July.
While we take pride in our show, competition is friendly and the rules are kept simple to encourage as many people as possible to take part.
Although the show's format is well tested, the Committee is always interested in ideas to bring new interest and engage more people in supporting the show. If you have any ideas or suggestions, particularly to involve children, please contact Phillip Ward.
