Get growing for the Autumn Show!!

table of vegThe Garden Club Autumn Show is being held this year on Sunday September 15th – that may seem ages away but you can start your entries now!

Did you know that as well as the usual classes for fruit and veg we have a class for heaviest marrow, heaviest pumpkin and sunflower head with largest diameter (adult and children)? Get sowing this weekend and grow your entry, and get the kids involved too!

Did you also know that a new class was introduced last year for best ‘homemade alcoholic beverage’, so if brewing is your thing, make something in the coming months.

This year we have revamped the flower arranging classes – choose from:

  1. ‘A Celebration arrangement’ (accessories may be used.)
  2. ‘Simply Red’, an arrangement using plant material only i.e. Flowers, foliage, berries and twigs
  3. Small arrangement for a table.

And finally, if photography is your thing, get snapping – categories this year are Faces (any – people, animals etc), Flower Power, Village Life, Holidays, Light, Close up ( anything). Children (under 16 yrs old) can enter photos of all the above subjects which will be judged separately.

Full schedules should be available next month – to obtain one, please contact secretary Katy Ellis at the Garden Club.
